Academic Advisors generally endorse additional summer coursework if you need a course to stay in sequence for a specific program OR out of your own personal interest. Ask your Academic Advisor if you have questions about what classes to complete over the summer.
If you choose to take a summer class (either at SLU or another institution), you will need to follow the steps below.
The preapproval process allows you to confirm that the course you are taking at another institution will fulfill the SLU requirement you desire. You can view an unofficial database of course equivalents to help you get started. The database is an unofficial record of courses previously transferred to SLU. If a course is not listed, this means that no one prior to you has transferred that course to SLU. It does not mean the course will not transfer.
In order to have an accepted course appear on your transcript, you will need to submit a copy of your transcript from the other institution and achieve a grade of C or higher.
