If you are a high school senior or a high school graduate who has not attempted any college-level coursework since graduating from high school, you should apply as a freshman.  
We have a rolling admission policy, which means that we review college applications throughout the year. Once your application file is complete, you'll be notified in approximately two to three weeks of the admission decision. 
If you qualify for a St. Bonaventure scholarship or grant, you will be notified within two weeks of receiving your letter of acceptance. In order to be considered for financial aid based on need, you must first complete the application for admission, then complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.)
