St. Bonaventure University

Oxford Acceptance, Costs & Payments


Available places to be announced

The number of spaces available for St. Bonaventure students is determined by Trinity College. If more students apply than the number of available spaces, St. Bonaventure will ask Trinity College to make more spaces available. There is little probability that additional spaces will be possible. Students who cannot be accommodated will be placed on a waiting list and will be accepted into the program when and if additional spots become available.

Acceptance schedule

People accepted into the 2021 Oxford program will be notified by email or USPS to their home addresses by Christmas 2020. An application will not be considered complete until the $250 initial deposit has been recorded by the business office.

If spaces remain after Christmas 2020, the application process will remain open until all spaces are filled.
However, the earlier you apply and pay the deposit, the greater the certainty of your acceptance for the program.

If you receive notification that you have been accepted into the program, you will be asked to confirm in writing that you are fully committed to participate in the program and will neither change your mind nor drop out. You must also pay the confirmation deposit of $500 immediately. 

Cost & payment schedule

  • Total cost: $6,500
  • Initial deposit: A $250 deposit must be made at the time your application is submitted. No application will be considered until the university business office has recorded the deposit.
  • Confirmation deposit: A $500 payment must be made as soon as you have been accepted into the program and confirm in writing your intent to participate in the 2021 program.
  • Interim payment: A $1,500 payment is due on or before March 5, 2021.
  • Final payment: Payment in full of the remaining balance will be due on or before May 7, 2021.

Method of payment

Payments may be made easily online. Go to my.sbu.edu, sign in and click on “Student Services." Under "Student Accounts," click on the Oxford tab. Fill in the information and the payment will be made from your account electronically. Alternatively, you may pay by paper check at the university business office in the Administration Building. Make your check payable to St. Bonaventure University and note “2021 Oxford Program” in the memo line.

Deposits & payments are not refundable

Please note that deposits and payments from students accepted into the Oxford program are not refundable. St. Bonaventure contracts to pay Trinity College for room and board for students accepted into the program. Payment to Trinity must be made by the university even if a student drops out of the program.
