General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations


To be considered for admission to any Saint Louis University undergraduate program, the applicant must be graduating from an accredited high school or have an acceptable score on the General Education Development (GED) test. Saint Louis University welcomes admission applications from home-schooled students. Home-schooled applicants must submit all secondary-level transcripts and official ACT or SAT test scores. If transcripts from an accredited home-schooling program are not available, an official copy of a GED certificate must be submitted for consideration for admission. Home-schooled students are eligible for scholarship consideration

Saint Louis University calculates a transfer applicant's cumulative, college-level GPA using the information presented on all required transcripts. Most of the University's undergraduate programs require at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) in previous college-level coursework to be considered for admission. An official high school transcript and official test scores are required only of those students who have attempted fewer than 24 transferable semester hours (or 30 quarter hours) of college credit. Test scores need not be reported independently if they are already included on the high school transcript.


Students are strongly encouraged to present five academic courses for each of their four years of high school. These academic courses should include: four years each of English and mathematics; and three years each of foreign language, natural sciences, social sciences and academic electives.
