Achieving your academic goals is dependent on your ability to thoroughly understand your studies, and our specially designed program helps you succeed. Fontbonne University recognizes the challenges non-native English speakers face when considering becoming an undergraduate student in the United States. That’s why we created a unique conditional admission program, a transitional program that blends together ESL (English as a Second Language) classes with academic courses until the student is prepared to enroll as a full-time undergraduate students.
|1||ESL only||Compass ESL test 219 or lower|
|2||1 academic class + 3 developmental ESL courses||Compass ESL test 220-230|
|3||2 academic classes + 2 developmental ESL courses||Compass ESL test 231-245|
|4||3 academic classes + 1 developmental ESL course||Compass ESL test 246-259|
|Full-Time||Full-time undergraduate||Compass ESL test 260+|
Conditional admission is available on a case-by-case basis for all graduate business programs. A student must earn a 275 on Compass or 6.0 on IELTS in order to enroll in academic graduate business programs. Students cannot dually enroll in graduate academic and ESL courses, and must complete the ESL courses or pass the COMPASS test or submit required IETLS/TOEFL before being allowed to enroll in Business courses.
