And during your time here, it’s likely you will study abroad and nearly certain that you will volunteer in the community or around the world.

Academic Resources at SLU 

Being admitted is only the first step. At SLU, first-year students are encouraged to enroll in University 101, a one-credit course that introduces you to campus resources and eases the transition from high school to college. From there, you’ll have access to academic support  ranging from your own advisor to topical study groups, to our writing center  and resources that help you plan for your career. 

Honors and Scholars Programs

At SLU, it’s cool to be smart. You can enter as an honors student, pre-law or pre-med student. Students accepted into our highly selective scholars programs can be placed on a guaranteed admittance track to School of Law or enjoy early application privileges to the School of Medicine. Scholars programs also exist for business, social work and physician assistant programs.
