Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply before December 1 because you're automatically considered for merit-based scholarships with your application.
  • Meet your admission counselor! They read your application and are great resources for any questions about SLU. You can find your admission counselor at
  • Send in a résumé with your extracurricular involvement, leadership experience, employment, and service activities. It's not required for admission, so sending it in will only help you.
  • Send in one or two letters of recommendation written by a teacher, employer, or mentor who knows you well. No need to send more than two-that's overkill!
  • Send in your top ACT score. SLU doesn't "superscore," but they will consider scores until December of your senior year.
  • Work hard in high school! SLU students in the class of 2014 had an average ACT score of 27 and an average GPA of 3.75.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Buy an assignment book and use it-your entire semester of tests and assignments will be scheduled on the first day of class, and having it all in one spot makes life a lot easier. College is a lot different than high school, and professors generally don't remind you of upcoming assignments, projects and tests-it's all on you!
  • Freshman get all excited about going to raging parties the first weekend. Don't feel pressured to find a party or drink, and make sure to attend the Welcome Week events. They're fun, and you'll meet a lot more people than trying to sneak into an upperclassman party. Once you have a group of friends and/or Greek events start, you'll have plenty of time to party.
  • Get a meal plan with a lot of flex points. Meal plans include weekly meal swipes and flex points (basically a gift card to use at any on campus dining location). Meal swipes expire weekly, and you can only use them in the all-you-can-eat cafeterias and on "swipe nights" at other restaurants on campus. Flex points roll over from fall to spring semester and can be used anywhere.
  • Take all the AP or IB tests and 1818 credit classes available. You can easily get credit for some of the SLU core classes, which will free up your schedule or allow you to graduate early.
  • Take the roommate forms seriously. If you don't like loud music, make sure that you state that in the housing forms. This is not the time to be polite and say you can live with anybody.
  • Work hard during the summer or find an on-campus job to earn money. Whether you're buying groceries, textbooks, alcohol, or a late night pizza, expect to spend a lot!
Interviews & Information Sessions
SLU has a variety of visit opportunities for interested students, and information and registration information can be found at Select Saturday visit programs are offered once a month featuring a general SLU presentation, student pannel, and campus tour. Preview Days give students more in-depth information on SLU because they feature information sessions on study abroad, financial aid, student life, the honors program, and pre-professional programs, in addition to general SLU information, a student panel, and a campus tour. Cultural Connections is a visitation program that focuses on diversity and cultural opportunities, scholarships, academic and extracurricular programs, and financial aid. SLU also has admitted student days and junior visit days in the spring that feature many of the opportunities mentioned above.

Admission counselors conduct optional admission interviews during the fall semester of your senior year in high school. You can email your admission counselor to set up an interview (find your admission counselor at
Campus Tours
Campus tours are held Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. During October-November and March-April, there are also additional weekly tour times on Mondays and Fridays. Campus tours last about two and a half hours and consist of a general SLU information presentation by an admission counselor and a student-led tour of campus. Interested students can register online, and visits are posted six weeks in advance at Saturday or Sunday tours are available based on student tour guide availability. To schedule a weekend tour, call (800) SLU-FORU and ask to speak with a visit assistant.
Overnight Visits
The Billiken-For-A-Day (BFAD) visitation program includes spending the night on campus, attending class with a current student, meeting with faculty, attending an SLU information session, and touring campus. To schedule a BFAD visit, call (800) SLU-FORU and ask to speak with a visit assistant.
