Registration

Whether you're a first-time or returning student in Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit Program, help is available throughout the registration process.

The 1818 Program is designed to engage students as college students. As such, the program encourages students to take responsibility for their 1818 involvement, including registration deadlines. High schools are encouraged to register students together on-campus online, but students can register online on their own. School officials may request virtual or on-site assistance from Saint Louis University staff to help with the registration process.

Students planning to enter pre-professional health programs or medical school should take special consideration when registering for college credit science courses as these programs typically will not accept AP or dual-credit coursework in these disciplines

Starting or Continuing Your 1818 Coursework

Registration is easy, accessible online, and can be completed in minutes. Parents may assist students but have limited rights in accessing their child’s college academic records. More information about parental rights is available through SLU’s Office of the Registrar. If issues arise during the registration process, please contact 1818@slu.edu.
