Registration is important. Learn how to empower your student!
Student Eligibility for 1818 ACC Courses
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. Below are the Admission Standards for students wishing to become a part of the 1818 ACC Program.
Every student admitted to the 1818 ACC Program must meet the following admission standards:
- Be a student in Grade 11 or 12 (Junior or Senior)
- Carry a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above (on an unweighted 4.0 scale)
- Have written endorsement from the principal or guidance counselor
- Have teacher approval for each course
- Be driven to meet the rigor and expectations of a college course
Under extraordinary circumstances, Standards 1 or 2 may be waived based on written petition to the 1818 ACC Program Director from the student's high school principal. See the Exemption Guidelines for more information.
Please note: All students enrolled in an 1818 ACC dual credit course, regardless of their choice to register for college credit or take it for high school credit only, at any of our partnering high schools should expect the course rigor and student expectations to compare to the rigor and expectations placed on university level undergraduate students enrolled in the same course on the Saint Louis University campus.
Help Coach Your Student Through Registration
A key part of becoming a college student is learning how to register for your own classes. A distinct difference between high school and college often is that the student is now responsible for picking classes and ultimately registering for them by themselves.
Our office, high school coordinators and instructors, and you are there to not register but empower the student to register on their own.
Here's what you can do to coach your student through registration:
- Talk to them before the start of a new semester and ask them what classes they're thinking about taking for dual credit.
- Ask to look at the registration materials they receive from their school.
- Review 1818 ACC registration materials and ask them for the course names and numbers for which they plan to register for the current semester.
- Remind them about deadlines and/or make them put them in their school planner.
- Encourage them to reach out to the 1818 ACC Office with questions or issues.
- Remind them that this is their course so they should register, and should reach out to their instructors, coordinator, or our office with issues.
