Online College Consortium (Acadeum)

HomeAcademicsOnline LearningOnline College Consortium (Acadeum)


Have you dropped below your full-time course load this semester and need to get back to at least 12 credit hours? Are you struggling in one of your current courses and need to take an additional course to maintain or boost your GPA? Want to get ahead by picking up an extra course before the new semester begins?

If so, then Acadeum may be right for you!

How it Works

Fontbonne University offers a variety of online courses through Acadeum, a consortium of like-minded accredited colleges and universities that share online course offerings. You can see a list of pre-approved online consortium courses below. A course taken through this consortium is considered institutional credit and will impact student grade-point averages just like any other FBU course.

Courses taken during the winter term will be included as part of the fall semester course load.


  • If you are enrolled between 12-18 credit hours in the current semester, you will be charged a $500 fee to enroll in an Acadeum course. 
  • If you dropped or withdrew from a course in the current semester such that your course load is now currently less than 12 credit hours, you may add an Acadeum course within the current semester to boost you back to the full-time course load of 12+ hours. You will be charged a $500 fee for adding an Acadeum course. 
  • If you are part-time (fewer than 12 credit hours) and adding an Acadeum course keeps you at less than 12 hours, you will be charged Fontbonne’s usual rate for each additional credit hour. There is no additional enrollment fee in this situation.  
  • If enrolling in an Acadeum course pushes your course load above 18 credit hours, you will be charged Fontbonne’s usual rate for each credit hour above 18 hours. There is no additional enrollment fee in this situation.  
  • Students enrolling in an Acadeum course during the summer will only be charged Fontbonne’s summer tuition rate. There will be no additional Acadeum enrollment fee in this situation.

For purposes of enrollment, winter term courses offered through Acadeum are included as part of the fall semester.

Students who receive the GI Bill® benefits cannot use their benefits to cover these courses. If they have questions, please contact Megan Morton at

How to Register
