Visiting Young Scholars
Visiting Young Scholars are current high school students who have the aptitude to succeed in 1000/2000 division courses at Saint Louis University. Qualified high school juniors and seniors may sit in SLU courses at the St. Louis campus, Spain campus or online.
Visiting/Non-Degree Seeking Students
Saint Louis University welcomes eligible undergraduate and graduate visiting students from any college or university to enroll in college credit courses at SLU, as well as all non-degree seeking undergraduate and graduate students wanting to take a course at SLU but who are not currently enrolled at another institution.
Visiting/Non-Degree students, either at the undergraduate or graduate level, are not formally pursuing a bachelor's degree or certificate at Saint Louis University (formal descriptions of admission classifications can be found here). For example, students:
- Taking prerequisites or to enhance academic potential before applying to a degree/certificate program
- Pursuing a bachelor's/master's degree or certificate elsewhere who plan to transfer credits to their home institutions
- Exploring courses for personal growth or career advancement
Students are welcome to apply year-round for all sessions/semesters at SLU and must submit a new application for every semester they plan to enroll.
Looking to take classes over the winter break instead? The Saint Louis University winter session offers undergraduate, online three-credit hour courses during the holiday break (mid-December to mid-January).
Faculty/Staff Auditing Courses
Faculty or staff wishing to "sit-in"/audit a course should complete a Petition for Course Audit. If you are a faculty/staff member wanting to audit a class as non-degree seeking (not part of a particular program), please submit the form to email@example.com.
