If you live outside the United States, or attended secondary school outside of the United States, applying to SLU generally takes three steps:
The online application will ask about your educational background and citizenship to help determine your eligibility. If you are applying to enter SLU as a first-time, freshman student, we’ll also ask you to complete an essay.
Find out from your admission counselor what secondary credentials are required. We’ll evaluate how you’ve done in school up to this point, so please send all transcripts for secondary work, along with their English language translations.
These are scores from any standardized test you may have taken to prepare for college — TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, SAT or ACT. All of our international applicants are required to demonstrate their English proficiency, and these tests can help us make that determination. If you do not meet SLU’s direct entry requirements, we encourage you to apply to the Pathway or English Language programs offered by INTO Saint Louis University.
INTO SLU provides instruction and pathway programs for international students who
need additional English-language and academic preparation. Upon successful completion
of the INTO SLU program, students gain full admission into one of SLU’s participating
undergraduate or graduate programs.
