Review Process for All Applicants

After receiving all necessary application materials, the 1818 Advanced College Credit program will:

  1. Review the online submission materials and, if no changes are needed, forward it to the respective University liaison. Instructors that do not meet criteria will be provided a formal denial letter and information regarding steps to become approved in the future.
  2. The University liaison will review the instructor submission. The liaison may contact the instructor for clarification or requested changes to their syllabus via email.
  3. Once the submission is deemed satisfactory, the liaison will notify the instructor and the 1818 Advanced College Credit program via email whether the instructor is approved or provisionally approved (with provisions stated).
  4. Once an instructor has received their approval letter, they should register and plan attend both the New Partner Orientation and the Summer Symposium. SLU credentials and University login/access will be provided during the New Partner Orientation by the  1818 Program.

Annual Instructor Requirements  

Each year, instructors must:

  1. Submit their course syllabus for the upcoming academic year using the SLU 1818 syllabus template.
  2. Ensure last academic year grades have been entered into Banner Self-Service
  3. Register and attend the Summer Symposium.

Not fulfilling any of these requirements annually may lead to your course not allowed to be offered for college credit until in compliance.
