Undergraduate Pathway Programs

Undergraduate Pathway Programs prepare students to enter an undergraduate degree program at Saint Louis University. These programs allow students to begin earning credits toward a degree while building their English proficiency.

Three types of Undergraduate Pathway Programs are available at Saint Louis University. Entry to each type of program is based on your English proficiency: 

  • An accelerated pathway is a one-semester program. 
  • A standard pathway is a two-semester program.
  • A comprehensive pathway is a three-semester program.

Upon successfully completing a pathway program and meeting progression requirements, students may enter the next semester of undergraduate study at Saint Louis University. This transition from a pathway to a University degree program is called matriculation.
