International Year One in General Studies at SLU

Your studies at SLU

At Saint Louis University, we believe in educating the mind, body and soul. A holistic approach to your degree program means you won't only learn the fundamentals of your field; you'll be exposed to other areas of interest that will inform your global perspective. You'll be able to bring more to the table in the classroom, as well as the boardroom, by having a broadened point of view and diversified skill set.

Get to know your faculty

Expert mentorship is a thread weaving through your entire study abroad adventure from refining your English language skills with our INTO SLU staff to getting to know your department faculty personally thanks to SLU's small class sizes. During your Pathway program, our INTO SLU staff knows exactly what you need to master to feel confident listening, speaking, reading and writing in English at the university level. Most of them have been international students themselves. Throughout your degree program, you'll be learning from accomplished authorities on your subject, as 99% of SLU's tenure-track faculty members hold the highest degree in their fields.

Student support at SLU

As an INTO Saint Louis University student, you'll have access to the same resources and support as traditional SLU students. We extend a number of resources to help ensure your academic success, like the Student Educational Services (SES), Billiken Bridge to Success and Peer Mentor program. Remember that tutoring at American universities comes at no additional cost, so you never have to worry about seeking out additional guidance to earn that A.

In addition, our Division of Student Development assigns you with both an academic advisor and a faculty mentor. We encourage you to meet with both your academic advisor and faculty mentor once a month so that they can recommend the best studying strategies. Our comprehensive support helps you stay on target for your graduation timeline and professional aspirations.
