Academic Policies

The School for Professional Studies adheres to the University's undergraduate academic catalog for its undergraduate policies and procedures. Find the most current version of SLU policies on the Registrar's page. Graduate students will find the academic policies for graduate students in the Graduate Education Catalog.

Student Success Center:

In recognition that people learn in a variety of ways and that learning is influenced by multiple factors, resources to support student success are available on campus. Students who think they might benefit from these resources can visit the Student Success Center

Students with a documented disability who wish to request academic accommodations are encouraged to contact Disability Services to discuss accommodation requests and eligibility requirements. Please contact Disability Services, located within the Student Success Center, at Disability_services@slu.edu or 314.977.3484 to schedule an appointment. Confidentiality will be observed in all inquiries. Once approved, information about academic accommodations will be shared with course instructors via email from Disability Services.


Grading Assessment & Academic Integrity Policies:

As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Saint Louis University prepares students with the intellectual, ethical, and spiritual foundations for a successful personal and professional life expressed in service to others. Its undergraduate degree programs reflect Saint Louis University's mission and values. The extent to which students achieve these desired outcomes is central to the University's and the School for Professional Studies' mission.

Student outcomes assessment is a continuous process of evaluating achievement expressed through expected competencies including intellectual and spiritual abilities, personal and professional development, and social action. Measurement of outcomes is undertaken regularly and becomes the basis for review of program offerings to ensure a high quality learning experience. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these measurements within their specific degree programs.

Academic integrity is honest, truthful and responsible conduct in all academic endeavors. The mission of Saint Louis University is "the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity." Accordingly, all acts of falsehood demean and compromise the corporate endeavors of teaching, research, health care, and community service via which SLU embodies its mission. The University strives to prepare students for lives of personal and professional integrity, and therefore regards all breaches of academic integrity as matters of serious concern.

The governing University-level Academic Integrity Policy was adopted in Spring 2015, and can be accessed on the Provost's Office website here.


Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity:

Saint Louis University and its faculty are committed to supporting our students and seeking an environment that is free of bias, discrimination, and harassment. The university has an Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity that provides information, policies, and procedures regarding Title IX concerns. 

Higher purpose. Greater good.
