The Premier Dual Credit Program
The 1818 Advanced College Credit (1818 ACC) Program is the premier dual credit program of Saint Louis University. It stands out as one of the best programs offered nationally with partnering high schools.
In partnership with high schools nationwide, Saint Louis University is able to offer college courses, taught by approved SLU adjunct instructors, to qualified high school Juniors and Seniors for college credit. Students are able to earn credit for both the high school class as well as earning Saint Louis University college credit at the same time, hence the term dual credit.
These college credits from SLU are transferable nation wide, cost less than regular undergraduate tuition, and prepare students for the anticipated rigor of higher education.
All students enrolled in an 1818 ACC dual credit course, regardless of their choice to register for college credit or take it for high school credit only, at any of our partnering high schools should expect the course rigor and student expectations to compare to the rigor and expectations placed on university level undergraduate students enrolled in the same course on the Saint Louis University campus.
