Transfer Scholarships and Institutional Aid

Institutional aid and scholarships are considered gift aid —meaning you do not have to pay them back — and come directly from Fontbonne.

Transferring with an Associate's Degree

Fontbonne Community College Commitment

Our commitment to associate’s degree earners is to create the most transparent and easily navigated enrollment process in the St. Louis area. First, we remove the confusion surrounding a sticker price with scholarships and offer you a flat tuition rate of $15,000/year or $7,500/semester. You can then apply your state, federal and loan money to decrease this cost. In addition, if you are part of Phi Theta Kappa on your campus, you are eligible for a Phi Theta Kappa scholarship (details below).

Second, we offer a number of articulation agreements with local community colleges to ensure you are making the most of your time and money. We will review your credits at the point of admission and give you a thorough analysis of what requirements you have left and how long they should take you to complete. We hope our support through this process decreases the stress of transition and increases the likelihood we get you to your bachelor’s degree!
