SLU 1818 Program
MUHS partners with Saint Louis University (SLU) to offer some courses for dual credit. Dual credit programs allow a student to take classes at his high school while earning credits both for high school and at the college. SLU's 1818 program is nationally known with a long, respected history, and given SLU is a Jesuit institution, the 1818 program was a natural fit for MUHS.
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.
In 2020-2021, MUHS is able to offer 18 courses in which students have the opportunity to enroll for dual credit: AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, AP Computer Science A, AP English Language, AP English Literature, AP European History, AP Human Geography, AP Spanish Language, AP Spanish Literature, AP Psychology, British Literature, Faith & Reason, Honors German 4/5, Honors Latin 4/5, Honors Spanish 4, Multivariable Calculus, and Shakespeare.
Since students are already enrolled in these courses for the 2020-21 school year, this is an additional option for them to earn college credits. There is no change to their daily schedules. 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 ~$1300/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. If interested, students must register for dual credit for fall semester courses no later than Sept. 30.
For AP courses, students may decide to opt out of the exam if they take the course for dual credit. To do so, a parent must complete the AP exam opt-out form by Sept. 30: AP Exam Opt-out Form
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.
