The exact admission requirements are set by specific programs, so contact the department directly for minimum test scores and other required materials. You can also find admission requirements on our listing of graduate degrees.

Test Scores

Some programs require GRE or other standardized test scores. These should be submitted electronically by the testing organization to SLU using SLU's institution code: 6629.

Dual-Degree Programs

If you are interested in pursuing one of SLU’s dual-degree programs, you must apply for admission to both programs. Otherwise, you are limited to applying to just one degree program for admission consideration.

Online Graduate Programs

Saint Louis University’s online graduate programs are available to distance learners in most, but not all, states in the United States.

Unclassified Applicants

If you are only interested in taking graduate coursework without formally pursuing a graduate degree, please use the online application to apply for unclassified status.

Unclassified applicants are required to complete the online application and submit the $20 application fee along with an official transcript showing conferral of a bachelor's degree or higher. Admission to unclassified status will be determined by program review. An unclassified student may not take more than six credits at the master's level and nine credits at the doctoral level.
