St. Bonaventure University

Education Early Assurance Program

Interested high school seniors and transfer students who enroll in an undergraduate teacher-preparation program have a reserved seat in one of our master's degree programs 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.

  • 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. 

    If you are a current SBU student who is considering the benefits of participating in an early assurance program, please email the Office of Graduate Admissions or call 716-375-2021.
