High School Transcript and Test Scores

If you have completed fewer than 24 credit hours at the time you apply for admission, you must submit an official high school transcript with graduation date and ACT or SAT scores as well. Test scores can be sent electronically or included with the official high school transcript.

Note: Saint Louis University offers a standardized-test-optional admission process for all undergraduate programs — applicants may submit standardized test scores, but those who choose not to will not be disadvantaged in any way in the admission process.

International Transfer Student Requirements

All international applicants to SLU are required to demonstrate their English proficiency by submitting scores from standardized tests taken to prepare for college such as the TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, SAT or ACT.

If you do not meet SLU’s direct entry requirements, we encourage you to apply to the Pathway or English Language programs offered by INTO Saint Louis University.
