St. Bonaventure University

Oxford Acceptance, Costs & Payments

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

The first wave of people accepted into the 2024 Oxford program will be notified by email or USPS to their home addresses by Christmas 2023. An application will not be considered complete until the $250 initial deposit has been recorded by the business office. 

If spaces remain after Christmas 2023, the application process will remain open until all spaces are filled or until March 1, 2024. 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.

Financial aid and scholarships

Financial aid is available for the Oxford program. Check with the Financial Aid Office, (716) 375-2528, or email them at

There are numerous scholarships available for the Oxford program. The directors will inform those accepted into the program of what is available and how to apply during spring semester. (Some scholarships are automatic; no application is necessary.)
