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.

  • 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.
