Academic Support

At Saint Louis University, we have a range of offices on campus to help you achieve your academic and professional goals, whether it's selecting a major, meeting with a tutor or success coach, preparing for final exams, or finding your first job post-graduation. 

SLU provides students with both an academic advisor and a faculty mentor. Guided study groups are available in some residence halls through our learning communities, or you can form your own with the help of SLU's residence hall staff.

Academic Advising

You’ll meet with your advisor and your faculty mentor regularly. Your primary advising office is determined by your major and the college where that major is housed. Some majors and programs — such as honors or pre-professional tracks — have a secondary advisor to help you meet those academic goals.

Billiken Success Program

Billikens' First Chapter is designed for students who may need additional support in the transition to college and matches students with a professional staff member who provides one-on-one, holistic support. Students are selected to participate based on information provided during the admission process.
