What it Takes to Be An 1818 ACC Student

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:

  1. Be a student in Grade 11 or 12 (Junior or Senior)
  2. Carry a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above (on an unweighted 4.0 scale)
  3. Have written endorsement from the principal or guidance counselor
  4. Have teacher approval for each course

Per the Missouri Department of Higher Education Dual Credit Policy Act, 11th and 12th grade students with a GPA between 2. 5 and 2.99 may be eligible to participate with parental and high school permission. Additionally, 9th and 10th grades students are eligible to participate with additional admission standards.

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.
