The 1818 Advanced College Credit Program seeks to promote the mission of Saint Louis University through the College of Arts and Sciences by providing a high quality educational experience to high school students, faculty and administrators in the Jesuit tradition of collegiality, cooperation and mutual respect. The 1818 Advanced College Credit Program provides an introduction to college-level expectations for high school students by challenging students to attempt a rigorous academic curriculum, encouraging faculty to continue their personal academic endeavors, and supporting administrators in enriching and extending the high school curriculum.
Saint Louis University is fully accredited through North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Saint Louis University is a founding institution of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP).
Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit Program complies with Missouri Department of Higher Education (CBHE), "Dual Credit Guidelines, " Adopted June 10, 1999.
Admission of Schools
Schools seeking to participate in the 1818 Advanced College Credit (ACC) Program must make a formal written request to the program director. Generally, a school's principal, or a designee familiar with the school's curriculum, initiates the request. Following a site visit, the ACC program director will either admit the school to the program, or recommend specific criteria which the school must meet in order to be admitted. Admission criteria typically include: teacher qualifications, curricular sequence, curricular rigor, and student selection process. If a school's request is denied, that school may reapply for admission when the necessary criteria have been met. The program director will notify the Advisory Board of all applications, and the disposition of each request. The acceptance process for a high school applying into the 1818 ACC Program may take up to one year.
Course offerings through 1818 Advanced College Credit are offered primarily through the College of Arts and Sciences. In addition, 1818 ACC offers Accounting through the John Cook School of Business.
All courses offered through 1818 ACC are also taught on campus at Saint Louis University, and compare in course content, course prerequisites and student expectations to the equivalent on-campus course.
Courses receive approval as 1818 ACC courses, after written request by an approved Adjunct Instructor.
Faculty requesting approval for a course to be included in 1818 ACC for the first time should submit a completed Course Approval Form, and a detailed course syllabus to the 1818 ACC office, which will forward the request to the appropriate University department Liaison. Final approval lies within the University department.
The 1818 ACC office requires a Course Approval Form each time the course will be offered. In addition, Adjunct Instructors should submit an updated course syllabus annually.
Course Approval Time Lines
Course Approval Forms for all 1818 ACC classes must be received in the 1818 ACC office at least one semester before the course will be taught. Typically, courses are approved for an entire academic year during the preceding spring.
The 1818 ACC Program recommends that classes should be kept small, ideally 15 - 20 students. Under no circumstance should classes exceed 35, and rarely 33. In the extraordinary event that exceptions are needed, they may occur only after consultation with the ACC program director.
A high school teacher wishing to become an Adjunct Instructor in the 1818 ACC Program should hold a Master's degree in the respective discipline. A teacher with a Master's degree in another discipline may be approved as an Adjunct Instructor, provided that teacher has a minimum of 18 graduate hours in the respective discipline. In extraordinary situations, a teacher may be approved as an Adjunct Instructor, as long as he or she meets the same criteria the department sets for hiring on-campus Adjunct Instructors. University departmental Liaisons, in consultation with appropriate department members and the ACC program director, make the final determination regarding approval of Adjunct Instructors.
A Teacher Application Packet is available from the 1818 ACC Program Office at Saint Louis University, from the 1818 ACC High School Coordinator, or online. Completed Teacher Applications will include the following: Faculty Information Form, Teacher Application Form, official academic transcripts, Course Approval Form, course syllabus, two letters of recommendation, one of which must be from the applicant's high school principal.
After reviewing the credentials, the ACC program director will forward them to the respective University Liaison for final determination. The University Liaison will notify the teacher and ACC program director in writing whether the teacher is Approved, Provisionally Approved (with provisions stated), or Not Approved at this Time (with reasons for lack of approval stated).
Names of Approved and Provisionally Approved Adjunct Instructors are forwarded to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, for appointment as adjunct instructors of Saint Louis University. The approved and provisionally approved applications are filed in the Office of the Academic Vice-President and Provost of Saint Louis University.
The 1818 Advanced College Credit Program recommends teachers complete the application process by July 1 for Fall courses, and November 1 for Spring courses. The 1818 ACC Program cannot guarantee timely approval for instructors submitting applications after these dates.
Approval to teach in the 1818 ACC Program is considered probationary for the first year a teacher participates. After the first year, a teacher will automatically be considered qualified to remain in the Program under the following conditions: the teacher has met, or is making significant progress toward meeting any specified provisions; the University Liaison and ACC program director approve continuation participation.
In developing the 1818 ACC Program's Policies and Procedures, Saint Louis University officials intend to recognize the professional competency of the high school educators participating as Adjunct Instructors, while ensuring that ownership and administration of the 1818 ACC Program belongs solely to Saint Louis University. Regarding Adjunct Instructors, the policies provide the following:
- Saint Louis University helps identify outstanding high school teachers in the area by accepting teachers into the program only after a thorough screening.
- Saint Louis University makes clear it recognizes the 1818 ACC teachers as genuine colleagues by granting the title Adjunct Instructor to those who qualify.
- Saint Louis University manifests it acts from conviction and not mere words in approving teachers to participate in the 1818 ACC Program and appropriating responsibility to them in keeping with their professional competencies.
- Saint Louis University provides 1818 ACC adjunct instructors special opportunities to further their professional careers by providing scholarships, as well as other forms of professional development.
- Facilitate the 1818 ACC Program at the respective high school, including the approval of adjunct instructors, and student registration.
- Serve as the liaison between the school and Saint Louis University, 1818 Advanced College Credit Program Office.
- Monitor the 1818 ACC Program at the high school.
- Assist in the student registration process, both on paper and online.
To encourage professional growth, Saint Louis University provides graduate scholarships to adjunct instructors, and prospective adjunct instructors. Scholarship applicants must apply through the 1818 Advanced College Credit Office for all scholarships. Certain conditions exist under which the scholarships are available.
- An approved adjunct instructor pursuing a doctoral degree from Saint Louis University may apply to the 1818 ACC Office for a scholarship. The teacher is expected to have student enrollment in his/her 1818 ACC course(s) during the time for which the scholarship is applicable. The scholarship will cover half-tuition for the first twelve (12) hours of the doctoral program. After the successful completion of twelve (12) hours, the teacher may apply for an additional scholarship that will provide full tuition for the remainder of the program. No adjunct instructor will receive this scholarship money for more than six (6) hours in any given academic year, including summer school.
- A teacher provisionally approved to participate in the 1818 ACC program who has completed nine to twelve graduate hours in the subject area taught (as determined by the university department), may apply to the 1818 ACC Office for a scholarship. This scholarship helps adjunct instructors achieve a Master's degree in the subject area for which the teacher was provisionally approved to teach. The scholarship will cover full tuition at Saint Louis University for up to six (6) credit hours during the academic year until all degree requirements are met. No adjunct instructor will receive this scholarship money for more than six (6) hours in any given academic year, including summer school.
- A teacher not currently teaching in the 1818 ACC Program, serving as 1818 ACC High School Coordinator may apply to the 1818 ACC Office for a scholarship. This scholarship helps a prospective adjunct instructor earn a Master's degree in the field in which he/she intends to teach in the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program, with the approval of the respective high school administrator. Though not an approved adjunct instructor in the program, the1818 ACC High School Coordinator, participates by coordinating student registration, course and program evaluations, course approvals, and other administrative tasks as designated by the high school principal and/or the 1818 ACC Director. For his/her participation in the program, the 1818 ACC High School Coordinator may apply to the 1818 ACC Office for a scholarship in the discipline in which the instructor is currently teaching, or in which the instructor intends to teach an 1818 ACC course. The scholarship will cover full tuition at Saint Louis University for up to six (6) credit hours during the academic year until all degree requirements are met. No adjunct instructor will receive this scholarship money for more than six (6) hours in any given academic year, including summer school. The scholarship benefit applies as long as the faculty member remains in the position of 1818 ACC High School Coordinator, by mutual agreement of the high school principal and 1818 ACC Director. Participating high schools are limited to one High School Coordinator scholarship per school.
- Adjunct instructors who are non-degree candidates may apply to the 1818 ACC Office for a scholarship. Adjunct instructors may receive scholarship money for no more than six (6) hours in any given academic year, including summer school.
- Institutional tuition scholarships are available to assist participating high schools in preparing selected teachers to meet the Master's degree requirement for approval as an Adjunct Instructor. Every school participating in the 1818 ACC Program is entitled to one credit hour of scholarship awarded for every 200 student credit hours taught, cumulative to 100 hours. Recipients of these scholarships are recommended by the participating high school principal to the 1818 ACC Program Director through an application form (see Forms) and must take courses in the discipline in which the instructor is planning to serve as an Adjunct Instructor. Institutional tuition scholarships are limited to six (6) credit hours in any academic year, including summer school.

All new Adjunct Instructors and new High School Coordinators are expected to participate in the New Teacher Orientation program conducted by the 1818 ACC Program, in order to offer their courses for college credit and/or to receive 1818 ACC Graduate Scholarships. Orientation is typically offered in early August, with a make-up session on a September Saturday.
1818 ACC instructors and high school coordinators (and/or administrators) are expected to attend an annual summer pre-service training session in order to remain current on University curriculum issues and 1818 ACC Program policies and protocols, and to continue to offer their courses for SLU credit and/or to recieve 1818 ACC Graduate tuition scholarships. Attendees receive stipends for their attendance.
The 1818 ACC Program is designed for those exceptional high school juniors and seniors who have the ability, motivation, and maturity to begin their college educations before high school graduation. Every student admitted to the 1818 ACC Program must meet the following admission standards:
- Be a student in Grade 11 or 12
- Carry a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale)
- Have written endorsement from the principal or a guidance counselor
- Have teacher approval for each course
Under extraordinary circumstances, Standard 1 or 2 may be waived based on written petition to the 1818 ACC program director from the student's high school principal. See Exemption Guidelines.
Exemption from 3.0 GPA
In order for a student holding less than a 3.0 GPA to be enrolled in the 1818 ACC Program, an official from the student's high school should request in writing:
"That ____________ be exempt from the 3.0 GPA standard for participation in the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program for the following compelling reason: (state the compelling reason)"
Compelling reasons may include such extraordinary circumstances as serious illness or accident which caused the student to miss a large amount of school; a family crisis or tragedy such as death, divorce, repeated moves; English as a second language which deterred the student's success earlier in his or her academic career; an unproductive freshman experience which impacted the student's GPA, but which the student has overcome through improved work and study habits.
Compelling reasons do not include "having trouble" or "communication problems" with a particular teacher or teachers outside of the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program; "a desire to work hard in the 1818 ACC class"; or the "potential" or "ability" to succeed in the class.
The 1818 Advanced College Credit Program is designed to provide a college- level academic experience for students with a proven track record of excellence. Students who have not yet established that record should be encouraged to persevere until they do, at which time they will fully qualify for participation in 1818 ACC.
Exemption for Sophomores
Sophomores in schools with five-year foreign language programs may participate in the 1818 ACC Program with a written request from a high school official indicating the following:
Student meets the required 3.0 GPA standard
Student has scored in the 90th percentile or above composite score on his or her most recent standardized test (MAP, IBTS, ACT, SAT, PLAN)
All requests for exemption should be made to:
Gayle Rogan, Ph. D., Program Director
1818 Advanced College Credit Program
3634 Lindell Blvd.
Verheagen Hall #108
St. Louis, MO 63108
Modern or classical language programs are the ONLY disciplines in which sophomores may participate in the 1818 ACC Program.
Registration for 1818 ACC courses occurs on each high school campus. School officials may arrange for University personnel to conduct on-site registrations, or may establish and follow appropriate registration timelines, in consultation with the ACC program director. All student registrations must come through the high school, either collected during an on-site registration, submitted by school officials, or submitted electronically by students. The 1818 ACC office accepts NO mail-in registrations directly from students.
Students MUST comply with registration dates and deadlines, typically the last week of September and January for Fall and Spring semesters, respectively. Failure to meet designated registration deadlines will prevent the student from enrolling in the course for college credit.
Registration for semester courses occurs every fall and spring. Registration for year-long courses (typically Accounting, American Studies, Biology, Calculus, French, German, Latin, Russian and Spanish) occurs only in the spring.
Students participating in the 1818 ACC program for the first time are considered "new" students, and will complete a paper registration form obtained through their high school coordinator.
Students who have completed one or more semesters in the 1818 ACC Program are considered "returning" students and will register electronically, using "Returning Students On-Line Registration." On-line registration directions are mailed to high schools each fall and spring, for duplication and distribution to students.
Student Tuition and Fees
Students may enroll in 1818 ACC courses at a reduced tuition rate of $60.00 per credit hour. The student has the responsibility to meet course registration deadlines, and tuition payment deadlines in order to participate in the 1818 ACC Program. The 1818 ACC office provides a calendar of registration and payment deadlines to high school officials and students prior to the beginning of each semester, as well as posting them on the Prgoram website.
Students who fail to register for a course by the registration deadline, typically the last weeks of September and January, for fall and spring, respectively, (click here for current deadlines) will not be allowed to register for 1818 Advanced College Credit, even though they may remain in the class, and complete it for high school credit.
Students who fail to make tuition payments in a timely manner will automatically be dropped from class rosters. The student will not receive college credit for the course, even though the student may remain in the course and complete it for high school credit.
Students dropped for tuition failures may be reinstated before the end of the following term with full tuition payment, plus substantial fees. Requests for reinstatement after the following term has closed will not receive consideration.
Students may enroll in up to three Advanced College Credit courses per semester. Under NO circumstances may a student enroll in more than eleven (11) credit hours in a semester.
Most 1818 ACC courses will apply toward meeting a student's core education requirements. However, because of certain programmatic demands, not all courses may apply toward meeting requirements for a major. For instance, students planning to enter the Pre-Professional Health Program (Pre-Med), are advised to take their advanced natural science courses (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) for high school credit only, and take them for college credit on campus.
Academic Integrity Statement
1818 ACC classes hold the same standards of academic integrity as other classes at Saint Louis University. Complete, specific college guidelines are available at Saint Louis University's website on academic integrity.
University Liaisons are appointed by their respective chairpersons, and agree to perform the following responsibilities:
- Review credentials, certify instructors.
- Attend University Coordinators' meetings.
- Notify Program Director of departmental academic changes.
- Meet annually with Program Director for year-end review.
Discipline-Specific Professional Development Responsibilities
- Provide disciplinary orientation for new instructors.
- Maintain collegial interactions with instructors.
- Provide annual professional development.
Student Academic Assessment Responsibilities
- Facilitate and coordinate student academic assessment in partner schools.
University Liaisons facilitate course assessment within the respective disciplines. University Liaisons may assist in assessment processes by communicating departmental assessment strategies to adjunct faculty and assisting in their implementation, or by using the following method of course assessment.
Between October 15 and November 15 in the fall, and March 15 and April 15 in the spring semesters, each adjunct instructor will prepare and administer midterm examinations. Afterwards, each probationary teacher will submit ALL graded midterm exams to the appropriate University coordinator for review. Teachers who have been in the program longer than one year will submit to the appropriate University coordinator six (6) graded exams from each class. These will include two (2) papers judged to be the best in the class, two (2) papers representative of the middle of the class, and two (2) papers judged to be the least meritorious in the class. The University coordinator may confer with adjunct instructors after reviewing exams.
In cases of quality performance concerns, the University Liaison may request that a similar review of final exams occur. If so, the University Liaison will notify the ACC program director that he/ she is making the request.
University Liaisons in departments utilizing an assessment plan which deviates from the above will notify both the adjunct instructors in their respective discipline, and the ACC program director of the assessment plan being implemented.
University Liaisons of the 1818 ACC program will maintain contact with adjunct instructors participating in the program. Special attention will be directed to those teaching in the program for the first time. Each University department participating in the 1818 ACC Program will offer guidelines to aid adjunct instructors in knowing what the University department expects in course content and student performance.
All students enrolling in 1818 Advanced College Credit courses, including the students taking the course for high school credit only, will be held to the same academic standards as those students taking the course on the University campus.
Adjunct instructors will evaluate their own students' course work and examinations, and assign grades within University department guidelines.
|A||4.000||High achievement and intellectual initiative|
|B+||3.300||Above average, approaching high achievement|
|B||3.000||Above average achievement|
|C+||2.300||Midway between B and C|
|D||1.000||Inferior but passing achievement|
The grades earned through the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program are considered Saint Louis University grades, and will become part of the student's undergraduate GPA if the student enrolls at Saint Louis University as a full time student.
Students not planning to attend Saint Louis University should note that most institutions do not accept grades lower than a "C" for transfer credit.
The office of the Saint Louis University Registrar maintains all student records at Saint Louis University, including the records of students enrolled in 1818 ACC courses. Registrar's Office provides official class rosters to teachers through Banner, the University's electronic faculty information system. Faculty also access Banner to record student grades at the end of the semester.
All student grades will be permanently recorded on the student's University transcript. Saint Louis University automatically accepts all course credit earned through 1818 ACC. All grades earned will be computed into the student's undergraduate grade point average.
The Office of the Registrar issues grades electronically to students through Banner after the close of the semester. The Office of the Registrar does not issue paper grade reports to students.
Once a grade has been issued, it may not be changed without a written request from the teacher assigning the grade, and approval of the ACC program director and University Registrar.
No course may be dropped from or added to a transcript after the completion of a course. Click here for a copy of a Change of Registration form.
Dropping Courses or Withdrawing From a Course
If a student chooses to DROP a course, the Adjunct Instructor will indicate the DROP by written notice on school letterhead to the Office of the Registrar, or on the appropriate form, within the required withdrawal dates. If the student has been dropped because of financial considerations, his/her name will not appear on the final grade roster. Click here for a copy of a Change of Registration form. Tuition will not be refunded.
Future Admission to Saint Louis University
Participants in 1818 ACC interested in applying for admission to Saint Louis University as a regular degree-seeking student may do so by checking the appropriate box on the 1818 ACC registration form. All ACC course work that is satisfactorily completed will count as graded course work toward a degree at Saint Louis University. (Students planning to enter Saint Louis University's Pre-professional Health Program are advised to take their natural science courses - Biology, Chemistry, Physics - as matriculated students.)

Transfer of Credit to Other Institutions
No college or university can guarantee that another institution will accept its credit in transfer. For information about transferability to other institutions, view our most recent Transferability Report.
Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit Program fully complies with the Missouri Department of Higher Education (CBHE) policy on Dual Credit courses, Adopted June 10, 1999. Students transferring courses within the University of Missouri system should expect a smooth transition.
Transfer of credits is the responsibility of the individual student. The Office of 1818 Advanced College Credit recommends students take the following steps to ensure ease of transfer:
- Confer with the Office of Admissions at the school or schools which you may attend, and clarify their policy on "transfer of dual credit courses."
- Keep a portfolio during your ACC course, which includes both a course syllabus and samples of your top quality work.
- Strive to maintain at least a B average in your course work.
- Submit your electronic transcript request through Banner Self-Serve, in a timely manner. Most colleges and universities accept transfer credit simply as credit earned, and do not incorporate the grades from transferred courses into the student's undergraduate grade point average. Most institutions offer transfer credit for only those courses with grades of "C" or better.
Transcripts of a student's official academic record are available only through the Office of the University Registrar, only upon the written or electronic authorization of the student, except as otherwise required by law. Students may acquire Transcript Request Forms from the Registrar's Office, or download a printable form by clicking here. Requests should include:
- Student's full legal name
- Dates of participation in the 1818 ACC Program
- Social security number and/or Banner ID number
- Complete address to which the transcript should be sent
Students may also request transcripts through Banner Self-Service. There is NO fee for this service. Transcripts of records cannot be released until all of the student's financial accounts are current. For further information, contact:

After registration has closed each semester, each adjunct instructor will receive an appropriate number of Student Identification Cards, necessary for the number of students enrolled for Advanced College Credit. Identification cards allow students to participate in cultural and sports events, and to use Pius XII Memorial Library.
Adjunct instructors receive Faculty Identification Cards, as well.
SLU User Names and E-mail Access
All adjunct instructors automatically receive a SLU user name and electronic access to Banner Self-Serve and Pius XII Library. SLU e-mail accounts are necessary for Adjunct Instructors to utilize remote access to Pius XII Library electronic databases. Account information is available through the 1818 ACC Office.
Pius XII Memorial Library
Library tours and classroom instruction sessions may be scheduled by contacting John Montre, the Library Instruction Coordinator. Information about visits to Pius XII Memorial Library may be obtained by clicking here.
Identification cards allow the holder to enter the University's Library, and access any service available to on-campus students/faculty. Because of the volume of students in the 1818 ACC program, 1818 ACC students are permitted to check out four (4) books per visit. However, renewal is permitted by phoning the library at 314-977-3087. The library assesses late charges for materials not returned on time. Students assume responsibility for damage to library materials or facilities, resulting during the student's charge. The University reserves the right to hold a student's grades until library accounts have been cleared.
Adjunct Instructors may secure a Saint Louis University photo ID through Parking and Card Services, DuBourg Hall #33. IDs are necessary for access to Pius XII Memorial Library and library services. In addition, ID cards offer benefits attached to Adjunct Faculty status, such as admission to cultural and athletic events at reduced prices.
Classes are invited to visit Saint Louis University's campus to observe a class, hear a lecture, visit the library, or participate in a special event designed for an 1818 ACC class. Adjunct instructors should call the appropriate University Liaison to arrange a visit.
Adjunct instructors are eligible to subscribe to SLU NewsLink, the electronic daily newsletter of Saint Louis University. Directions for subscribing are available through the 1818 ACC office.
All 1818 ACC adjunct faculty members, high school coordinators, and one high school administrators per school may receive graduate tuition scholarships for up to six hours of graduate credit annually. The adjunct instructor has the responsibility to cover all institutional fees associated with registration and attendance. See Tuition Scholarships.
Attendees at summer pre-service training sessions receive stipends for their attendance. The 1818 ACC office staff presents an annual series of summer pre-service training sessions in order to keep adjuncts current on University curriculum issues and 1818 ACC Program policies and protocols. 1818 ACC instructors and high school coordinators (and/or administrators) are expected to attend, in order to maintain "active instructor" status, and offer their course(s) for SLU credit.
The College of Arts and Sciences within Saint Louis University maintains ownership of the 1818 Advanced College Credit Program. The following policies assist in insuring the integrity of the program.
- No teacher will participate in the program without the approval of the appropriate University department.
- Before the beginning of each semester, the University may disapprove any teacher or course, if such an action is deemed necessary by the appropriate University department.
- The appropriate University department Liaison will approve the syllabi for all courses.
- University department Liaisons will consult with adjunct instructors regarding departmental student performance expectations, and assessment strategies.
- All adjunct instructors will comply with the respective University departmental assessment plans and strategies.
