Application Process

The first step in the admissions process is to complete an appointment with an enrollment advisor to discuss the program and your background. This meeting usually lasts about 30 minutes. If you have not already met with admissions, please schedule an appointment.

When you are ready to start your application, you will provide the following information (requirements vary by program; see an enrollment advisor for specifics related to your program):

  • academic history
  • work experience
  • resume
  • recommendations, interviews, writing samples, or other information (if required by program)
  • GMAT or GRE (MBA program only; waiver available)

You do not need to have transcripts, recommendations or any entrance exams, if required, submitted at the time of your application. We encourage you to submit your application online and then to make arrangements for supporting materials to be sent to SBU.

There is no fee to apply online. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and you will receive written notification of the admissions decision.

If you have any questions at any point of the admissions process, please call the admissions office at 1.844.424.4960, schedule an appointment, or click the chat box in the bottom right corner of your screen to open a chat with an advisor on our website.


I have learned so many great counseling skills at St. Bonaventure and so far, I have been able to apply most of what I am learning in my job as a psychosocial rehabilitation skills trainer. I can apply my skills in listening, counseling with an understanding of theories, and I have a better understanding of many mental disorders. I have been excelling at my job because of these skills and I am thankful to have this knowledge.
