Undergraduate Admissions

Join the Fontbonne Community with an Undergraduate Degree

As an undergraduate student at Fontbonne, you’ll be part of a diverse and welcoming community of students from all over the world.

Your classes will be small — with a faculty-to-student ratio of 10:1 — which means you’ll receive personalized instruction from professors who are experts in their field. And outside of the classroom you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved in student organizations, play intramural sports, find internships or explore everything the city of St. Louis has to offer.

Review Fontbonne’s admission requirements and deadlines below, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions! You can contact the Office of International Affairs at
