Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment

SLU 1818 Program

MUHS partners with Saint Louis University (SLU) for dual enrollment of some courses. Dual credit allows qualified students to earn college credit at a discounted rate for authorized courses at MUHS where they are enrolled. These courses are determined on an annual basis by MUHS and SLU, and students should not select these courses with the expectation that they will be offered as dual enrollment. If a course is offered as dual credit students will register for SLU credit by the end of September. The registration process will be distributed to students and parents at the beginning of the academic year. Students are not required to take a MUHS course offered as dual enrollment course for college credit.

The tuition for dual credit through SLU is greatly reduced from an on-campus course at $65/credit hour (~$195 - $260 per semester) compared to $770/credit hour for undergraduate credit. If a student opts not to enroll in the dual credit option, he simply continues in his class as usual.

In the 2018-2019 school year, Marquette High was able to offer nine courses in which students had the opportunity to enroll for dual credit: AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP English Language, AP English Literature, AP European History, AP Human Geography, AP Psychology, and Multivariable Calculus. Several more courses may be added for the 2019-2020 school year.

Students who want to register for college credit for authorized courses must meet the following conditions:
  • Sophomores: Minimum of 3.0 cumulative GPA and parent and school permission
  • Juniors and Seniors: Minimum of 2.5 cumulative GPA and parent and school permission

Marquette University Partnership

Students may take courses at Marquette University during the January-term, summer, and spring semesters at a significantly discounted tuition ($500 for a 3-credit course). Information about enrollment in a MU course should be requested through the Assistant Principal for Academics.

SLU 1818 Update from Asst. Principal of Academics (3-24-2020)

SLU has provided us with some information regarding the dual credit program in light of the move to online learning that is occurring in most high schools as a result of the coronavirus. Below is an excerpt from SLU's email. Essentially, if you are in an AP class and you did not register for dual credit but now wish to, you may register by April 5th. Registration is open through the SLU Application Portal.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Students should stop by my office hours ( in the afternoon this week or send an email.

Ms. Maloney
