Since 1818, Saint Louis University has made it our mission to pursue truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. To foster intellectual curiosity. To serve others with compassion. To change the world for the better. We look for the same in our students.
Our Jesuit tradition demands excellence in research and teaching. We deliver with nearly 90 undergraduate majors across 10 colleges and schools. Our graduates start nonprofits, discover new vaccines and teach in under-resourced schools. They become business leaders at the biggest companies and servants to those in need.
Their paths to success may vary, but they all started here.
SLU offers four application paths for first-time freshman applicants: Early Decision I and II, Early Action and Regular Decision. Whichever option is a fit for you, you can apply using the SLU applicant portal or through the Common Application. There is no application fee when you apply for undergraduate admission.
