We offer a number of ways to explore St. Bonaventure to see if it's the right fit for you.

St. Bonaventure University

SBU'S "Visit Incentive Program"

During these trying times, we want our future Bonnies to know that we are here to support and encourage them. That's why we're offering our fall 2021 prospective freshmen* the opportunity to have up to $2,000 ($500/year for four years) included in your financial aid award. 

We know that the best way to see yourself as a Bonnie is to experience SBU first-hand; while that may be difficult for some, we want to assure you that we'll do our best to give you all the insight you need as you're making your college decisions.

*Excludes Division 1 scholarship athletes, as well as students receiving full tuition.

For more information, contact the Office of Admissions via email or by calling 716-375-2400.
