Freshman Admission

Be a Billiken

Since 1818, we have made it our mission to pursue truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. To foster intellectual curiosity. To serve others with compassion. To change the world for the better. We look for the same in our students.

Our Jesuit tradition demands excellence in research and teaching. We deliver with more than 90 undergraduate majors across 10 colleges and schools. Our graduates start non­profits, discover new vaccines and teach in under­-resourced schools. They become business leaders at the biggest companies and servants to those in need.

Their paths to success may vary, but they all started here.

This year, SLU is partnering with Raise.me to help students in grades 9-12 earn micro-scholarships for academic and extracurricular achievements throughout high school. When students add achievements to their portfolio on Raise.me, they become eligible to earn micro-scholarships throughout their high school career. Contact your admission counselor for more information.
