Graduating seniors may want to look into postbaccalaureate programs.
The College of Arts and Sciences annually presents the James D. Collins Awards for Excellence in Student Academic Achievement to recognize scholarship and creative achievements among undergraduate students. This award is given to a senior that has demonstrated outstanding work as a neuroscience major.
The Senior Legacy Symposium is an annual event that celebrates the achievements and abilities of Saint Louis University students.

You must be a graduate of an accredited high school or have an acceptable score on the GED. An official high school transcript and official test scores are required only if you who have attempted fewer than 24 transferable semester hours of college credit.
If you have completed 24 college credit hours or more, you need only submit a transcript from previously attended colleges. In reviewing your file, the Office of Admission will holistically examine your academic performance in college-level coursework as an indicator of your ability to meet the academic rigors of Saint Louis University.
In addition, if you transfer as a sophomore and intend to major in neuroscience you must have transfer credits for PSY 1010, BIOL 1040, BIOL 1060, CHEM 1110/1115 and CHEM 1120/1125 with a grade of B- or better in each course. If you transfer as a junior, you must also have transfer credits for BIOL 3020 and BIOL 3040 with a 3.0 GPA in these courses.
