St. Bonaventure University

Early Assurance Cybersecurity (B.S./M.S.)


Our Early Assurance in Cybersecurity program secures placement for interested high school seniors and transfer students in our master's degree program in cybersecurity upon completion of their undergraduate studies.

Early assurance programs let you lock down your seat in a master's degree program as an incoming freshman or transfer student provided you maintain good standing in the undergraduate program and meet the graduate program's academic admission requirements.

This program allows students to begin taking graduate-level courses during their senior year of undergraduate studies. Not only does this provide a financial savings on the overall cost of the master's degree, but because the master's program is strictly online, it provides the opportunity to work and earn a salary while completing the degree.


  • How to apply for early assurance

    When applying for admission to St. Bonaventure, whether using the free Common Application or St. Bonaventure’s free application, applicants should indicate, under the “Early Assurance” question, that they wish to apply for an early assurance program.
