SLU Launches 2+SLU Dual-Admission Program with St. Louis Community College
Saint Louis University and St. Louis Community College (STLCC) have partnered to launch
2+SLU, a dual-admission program that offers students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s
degree in select programs at SLU in two years, after completing an associate degree at St. Louis Community
A kick-off event for the 2+SLU program will take place from 1–2:30 p.m. Wednesday,
March 1, at STLCC-Forest Park’s Student Center Café West. Members of the SLU community
are encouraged to attend the event.
Increasing Access to Four-Year Degrees
The 2+SLU dual-admission program provides students with another access point into
Saint Louis University and the top-ranked programs the University offers.
“This collaboration between SLU and St. Louis Community College is a long-term initiative
focused on bringing a premier SLU education within reach of more students,” said Jay
Goff, SLU’s vice president of enrollment and retention management.
For the growing number of students who begin their postsecondary education at a community
college with plans to later transfer to a four-year university, programs like 2+SLU
are a valuable option.
“While SLU has always welcomed students transferring from community colleges, the
2+SLU program will provide students with a more seamless transition and a well-defined
path — pre- and post-transfer — to their chosen degree,” Goff said.
Equipping Transfer Students to Succeed
As part of the 2+SLU program, students will have access to campus resources such as
Pius XII Memorial Library, and guidance from advisers at both STLCC and SLU to ensure
classes taken at the community college meet the student’s individual educational goals
and satisfy 2+SLU requirements.
The new program is intended to help students be engaged with SLU’s campus culture
early in their college experience.
“2+SLU offers an opportunity to build relationships with students before they even
set foot in a SLU classroom,” said Jean Gilman Cox, SLU’s dean of admission. “Not
only will 2+SLU boost the academic continuity of transferring from STLCC to SLU, students
can become part of the SLU community from day one.”
Students interested in 2+SLU can contact SLU’s transfer admission team at 314-977-2500, 800-758-3678 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
