In lieu of a high school diploma, Fontbonne will honor a satisfactory score on the General Educational Development (GED) exam or HiSET exam. Students submitting the GED/HiSET rather than a high school transcript must include a copy of their test scores when submitting to the office of admission. Your test scores must be on file prior to final registration.
All accepted candidates currently enrolled in high school must successfully complete all work in progress and submit, upon graduation, an official high school transcript showing all work completed, including their date of graduation. Your transcript must be on file prior to final registration.
You worked hard to prepare for college, including putting in the time and effort to succeed in college-level classes. Great news! We accept college credit (100 level or higher) and Advanced Placement credit (must receive a score of 3 or higher on the AP exam). Be sure to send us a transcript from the institution awarding you college credit and/or your scores from the College Board for AP credits so we can include it in evaluation for admission and registration for classes. Learn more about transferring credit to Fontbonne.
The university awards merit based scholarships to students who are admitted to the university. To be eligible, students must apply for full-time (12-18 credit hours), degree-seeking status. Fontbonne also encourages applicants to apply for financial aid consideration to help assist with the cost of attendance
