In light of recent worldwide testing center closures due to COVID-19, Fontbonne University would like to extend the opportunity to applicants for Fall 2020 to take Duolingo English Test as an option instead of TOEFL or IELTS. All results will be evaluated by the Director of English as a Second Language, and admission results will be returned in a timely manner. 

At this time, we are offering free testing while supplies last!
