COVID-19 Update: Testing, Events and Upcoming Information

Aug. 7, 2020

Dear Saint Louis University students and parents, 

Thank you for your continued patience with us as we prepare for the fall semester. With just 9 days until the new term begins, I write to share a few important updates. We have been working on most of these items for weeks, and are eager to share this preliminary information with you — even as we work toward finalizing the details you are eager to know.

Please continue to ask your questions at and consult the FAQs and other relevant content on the Back to SLU website. We add new information daily. 

I appreciate your continued patience and understanding. Though we do not have all of the answers, in this quickly shifting environment, we are working hard to get you as much information as we can. 

The past few months have been incredibly intense for all of us as we plan for the fall. Please join me in thanking the faculty, staff, and administrators at SLU for their unwavering dedication to you, our students, and to our noble mission.

We are OneSLU. 

Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D.
