Don't worry about financing your studies!
  • All of your academic tuition scholarships (except athletic scholarships) and financial aid travel with you on SLU-approved semester and year study abroad programs!
  • All of your study abroad expenses will be billed directly by SLU. 
  • Please note that FACHEX, Tuition Exchange and tuition Remission only apply to the Saint Louis University Madrid Campus.

Plan Ahead!

  • Work with your Academic Advisor and Mentor(s), as early as possible, to include studying abroad into your academic plan. Consult with your academic advisor and mentor(s) to determine the best semester for studying abroad and the best courses to save for your semester abroad.
  • Students study abroad during Sophomore or Junior year and apply one semester before the semester in which they wish to go abroad. (Transfer students must spend at least one semester at the Saint Louis University Campus before applying to study abroad.) 
  • Grades from SLU-approved study abroad and exchange programs do apply to your SLU transcript and SLU GPA (an "A" in London is an "A" at SLU). .
