About Fontbonne University

Fontbonne University in St. Louis, Missouri, is a four-year Catholic school that offers traditional bachelor’s degrees as well as accelerated degree programs for adult learners. Students get the benefit of small classes and service learning activities. Catholic ideals such as civic engagement and social justice are also emphasized, both in and out of the classroom.

More than 60 majors and minors are available at Fontbonne. Among them are:

  • Art
  • Education
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Performing Arts
  • Religion
  • Psychology

Fontbonne also offers an accelerated bachelor’s degree in business for adult learners.

Classes are small, which means that students can learn more effectively and get to know their professors, as well as other students.

Service is also an integral part of the Fontbonne educational experience. Service projects could include everything from working with at-risk youth to running a food drive. Since service is also part of the learning experience, service projects may often be related to one’s major.

Spiritual activities, such as campus ministries, religious services and spiritual retreats, are a strong component of Fontbonne’s campus life.

Fontbonne generally requires that applicants have a GPA of at least 2.5, a minimum ACT score of 20 or an SAT score of at least 1410. Applicants must also have completed college preparatory courses in English, math, science and a foreign language. Fontbonne also accepts a GED in place of a high school diploma. Those who don’t meet the minimum admissions requirements may still be admitted conditionally.

Fontbonne awards financial aid to help eligible students cover tuition costs. Financial aid packages could include Plus loans, Stafford loans, grants and work-study money. Students who do not qualify for these federal aid sources may obtain information from the financial aid office about private loans and scholarships.
