Now That You're In, Here's What Comes Next

Preparing for college is a giant first step on the path to the future you envision. Fortunately, you’ve already completed the hardest parts—researching colleges, narrowing down your choices, and submitting your applications.

Now, there’s just a few steps left before you can officially call yourself a Griffin. And, most can be completed online, when and where you’re ready.

Steps in the Enrollment Process

It Starts with FAFSA

Begin your college journey by completing the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). This is
a form provided by the federal government to
determine a student’s eligibility for financial aid. You
will need to submit a FAFSA every year you wish to
apply for financial aid.

Complete Your FAFSA

responsibility agreement and student authorization
form to secure the financial aid you need. Our
Financial Aid team is here to help you make your
Fontbonne education a reality. Reach out if you have
any questions at all on grants, loans, scholarships,
eligibility, or the application process.

summer orientation event. This is a chance for you
