SLU 1818 Classes

These courses are dual credit college courses. Chaminade students may choose to take the course for college credit or simply for credit toward high school graduation. Regardless of the choice the student makes, the course rigor and student expectations are designed as a college course, and compare to the rigor and expectations placed on students enrolled in the same course on the Saint Louis University campus. These courses are taught in affiliation with Saint Louis University.  Chaminade faculty is adjunct instructors of Saint Louis University who are highly trained and accountable to maintain university standards.  

If a student opts to take an 1818 ACC course for college credit, the grade they earn in the course will be recorded on an official Saint Louis University transcript. If a student enrolls as an undergraduate at Saint Louis University upon graduation from Chaminade their 1818 ACC college credit courses count towards their cumulative undergraduate GPA, and do not require a transcript request from SLU. 1818 ACC college credit may also be transferable to other universities by requesting a transcript from Saint Louis University. Students are highly advised to check with their College Counselor regarding the transferability of the credit to an institution other than Saint Louis University.

Chaminade students registering for 1818 ACC courses are rewarded with full access to university libraries at the time of their studies. 

Students may register for both fall and spring semester courses.
