Transfer Credits

Our students report that over 500 colleges and universities internationally have accepted credits earned through Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit Program.

Some were accepted as elective courses only. The 1818 Advanced College Credit Program assumes no responsibility for validating the accuracy of the responses. It is the responsibility of the student to contact prospective institutions to discuss exactly how credits will transfer.

  • If You Are Planning to Study at SLU: Grades earned through the 1818 Advanced College Credit program are considered Saint Louis University grades and will become part of your undergraduate GPA if you enroll at SLU as a full-time student.
  • If You Are Planning to Study Elsewhere: If you are not planning to attend SLU, please note that most institutions typically do not accept grades lower than a "C" for transfer credit. It is your responsibility to investigate how other institutions transfer in credits earned through the 1818 Advanced College Credit program.

Transcripts can be requested through SLU’s Office of the Registrar.

Where Will My 1818 Credits Transfer?

1818 Credit Transfer Map
 

Since 2012, the 1818 Program has engaged alumni of the program regarding where and how their credits have transferred. The information has been published into an annual report and developed into a unique interactive map resource that no other dual credit program provides. SLU does not validate alumni responses.  

All resources below are meant to help assist families in researching 1818 credit transferability to different institutions nationally. However, it is your responsibility as a student to contact prospective institutions to discuss exactly how credits will transfer.

In addition to the resources published by the 1818 Advanced College Credit program, we encourage families to research transferability of SLU credit using the following external resources:

  • Transferology.com is a free site that requires an account creation. It allows you to list all of your SLU 1818 courses and search through participating universities to see how the credits traditionally are articulated at the institution. Saint Louis University is a partner institution of the website and regularly updates its courses to ensure maximum accuracy. 
  • The UConn external transferability database has compiled transfer data from institution across the country and provides a one to three star ranking on the likelihood of an institution accepting dual credit courses in general.

Trouble Transferring Credits?

The 1818 Program knows you've worked hard for your credits. While it is the student's responsibility to contact prospective institutions before enrolling to find out how credits will transfer, the 1818 Program will assist you if you encounter transfer issues. Please note we will exhaust all avenues to try to help you, but it is the host university's ultimate decisions based upon their internal policies.

If you have transfer issues, please follow these steps:

  1. Request an explanation why the course was not transferred and offer to provide your course syllabus for review. If you do not have a copy of your syllabus still, please contact 1818@slu.edu.
  2. If after review of the syllabus you still cannot transfer your credit, please contact the 1818 Program at 1818@slu.edu and put us in contact with who you have been speaking with regarding your transfer credit.
  3. If we cannot resolve the issue, we will attempt to connect a SLU faculty member with a member of the host institution's faculty to discuss the course content to attempt to resolve the transfer issue.
