Undergraduate Applicants

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or transferring from another undergraduate college program, pursuing a degree at Fontbonne begins by applying.

Are you Degree Seeking or Non-Degree Seeking? 

You’re a  degree-seeking student  (Freshman,  Transfer, Certificate Seeking, etc.,)  if you want to select a major and work towards a Bachelor’s degree even if you choose to start out as undecided or undeclared,  you are still considered degree-seeking. 

You’re a  non-degree-seeking student (Visiting, Dual High School, Senior Citizen scholar, etc.) if you just want to earn some undergraduate credit through on-campus or online classes. No financial aid is available as a non-degree seeking student.

Graduate Applicants

Pursue education beyond your bachelor’s degree by applying to one of our professionally oriented and academically rigorous graduate programs.

General Admission Requirements

For admission to Graduate Studies, an applicant must have:

  • Earned a 2.5 or better grade point average in the baccalaureate degree (keep in mind, this is the minimum GPA to apply to graduate school, but program specific grade point averages for consideration may vary)
  • An acceptable English proficiency test score (non-native English speaking applicants only). Please see the International Applicant Instructions page for the Graduate School English Language Proficiency Policy

Please note that academic programs often have admission requirements beyond these general requirements. For more information on minimum admission requirements, please click here.
