In Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit program, we believe that a head start on a college career is more than just earning dual credit. Our office works with our partner high schools to truly help develop students and help them gain the mindset needed to succeed in college.
From challenging all students through college-level curriculum in the classroom to guiding them through the registration process and helping them understand the tuition process, we prepare students for their college career before they even step foot on a university campus.
Whether you're a school official looking to partner with the 1818 Advanced College Credit program or you're a veteran teacher refreshing your skills, we're glad to have you with us.
The 1818 Advanced College Credit program isn’t just beneficial to students; instructors and coordinators can benefit from the program, too.
