1818 Tuition and Scholarships

Saint Louis University's 1818 Advanced College Credit program offers students the opportunity to earn college credit at a discounted rate.

Tuition for the 1818 program is billed based on the number of credit hours the student is enrolled in. Upon successful registration, a tuition bill will be mailed to your home address. SLU bills tuition based on semesterly registration. Families will receive a tuition bill each semester their student chooses to enroll in 1818 courses.

There are three ways to pay your bills. If you don't pay your tuition in full on time, you will be dropped from your class and have to pay a $50 reinstatement fee.

You can also pay your tuition bill by mail by writing a check payable to “Saint Louis University.” In the check memo line, put your full name and Banner ID number.

Mail your check to:

Pay in Person

Due to COVID-19, this payment method is currently suspended due to restricted access to campus. 

You can pay your tuition bill in person at Saint Louis University's campus.  Make the check payable to "Saint Louis University." In the check memo line, write your full name and Banner ID. Drop your check off in the payment box outside of the cashier’s office in DuBourg Hall.

If you do not have a tuition statement, please visit the Office of Student Financial Services in DuBourg Hall Room 121 to obtain a printed copy.

1818 Scholarships

A need-based student scholarship to assist students in paying their 1818 Advanced College Credit program is available. High schools are awarded $390 of tuition assistance (six credit hours) per academic year. High school officials are responsible for deciding how to award the tuition scholarships to  students. Scholarships assistance does not roll over to the next academic year and cannot be used towards reinstatement or late fees.

To request scholarship assistance, talk to your 1818 Advanced College Credit coordinator. The coordinator will submit the scholarship request form during the request period. Multiple students can be submitted on one form.

At the close of the request period, the 1818 Advanced College Credit office will verify awards and submit for processing to student financial services at SLU. Awards will then be applied and high schools will be notified through their 1818 Advanced College Credit coordinator.

Students/families are responsible for paying tuition balance not covered by the award. If a remaining balance is not paid in full by the tuition deadline, the student is still eligible to reinstate and receive their scholarship but will be required to pay the $50 reinstatement fee.
