Off-Campus Courses and Reverse Transfer

Off-Campus Course Articulation

All courses taken off-campus by current Saint Louis University students must be approved by your college or school and routed through the Office of the University Registrar prior to credit being posted.  Please complete and submit the Petition for Undergraduate Off-Campus Enrollment to begin this process. 

Please see this website to find out which courses will count for credit at Saint Louis University. For courses that have not been previously articulated, you can submit requests for approval via the Off-Campus Articulation Request Form.

This approval process may take two to four weeks to complete. Questions regarding the transfer course articulation procedures or the status of your transfer coursework should be directed to articulation@slu.edu.

The Articulation Process

Step 1: Send transcripts from outside institutions to Saint Louis University

 

Current undergraduate students:

Saint Louis University
Office of the University Registrar
One Grand Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63103

Current professional and graduate students:

Send your transcript to the address specified by your college or dean's office.

School for Professional Studies students:

School for Professional Studies
Brouster Hall
3840 Lindell Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63108

Step 2: The registrar’s office will route courses to the appropriate academic department to evaluate the transcripts

If the transcript received contains ungraded course work, you will need to submit a final transcript once all course grades have been recorded by the originating institution.

Courses for which you received a C or better will be evaluated and articulated. Courses with a grade of C- or below will not be transferred.

Step 3: Courses are entered on your student record

If the courses you are transferring have been evaluated previously by SLU, then they will be articulated immediately. If courses have not been previously evaluated, they will be routed to the most closely related department at Saint Louis University for evaluation.

Step 4: Student receives notification

You will receive unofficial email confirmation as your courses are articulated. Once all courses have been evaluated.

You can then view the SLU equivalent courses via your academic transcript on Self-Service Banner.

Reverse Transfer

Missouri has moved forward with a statewide policy to help more Missourians earn degrees. For more detailed information on Missouri reverse transfer, visit the Missouri Department of Higher Education website, read the FAQs below or contact SLU’s reverse transfer coordinator, Jay Haugen, at haugenjp@slu.edu.

What is Missouri Reverse Transfer?

The process of allowing college students or former college students who have completed credits for an associate degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a different college or university, or dropped out of higher education altogether.

What are the benefits?

You can earn your associate degree while pursuing your bachelor degree at Saint Louis University and possibly meet general education requirements within your SLU college or school.

Am I eligible?

You must have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at a single two-year institution to be eligible for a reverse transfer degree. Students are not eligible for the program if they currently possess an associate degree or higher.

How does Saint Louis University help with reverse transfer?

Saint Louis University will work with students to help send transcripts to partner two-year institutions in order to facilitate the reverse transfer process.

What do I need to do to participate in reverse transfer?

You will need to give us permission to share your transcripts with your two-year college. Please complete the Reverse Transfer Transcript and Record Release form and submit it to the Office of the University Registrar.
