The Business Scholars Program at Saint Louis University's Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business allows students to complete any undergraduate business degree in only three calendar years, including summer courses.
The curriculum is the same as the traditional four-year degree program; this is only a time-shortened, not content-shortened, program.
Business Scholars have guaranteed enrollment in business courses as long as the curriculum plan is followed.
High school seniors applying for admission are reviewed on an individual basis. The best-qualified students are selected from the application pool with a required minimum high school GPA of 3.75 on a 4.00 scale with a high school math GPA of 3.6 after completion of at least three years of coursework. Standardized test scores are now optional but recommended; international applicants may be required to submit proof of English proficiency. Applicants should note that students accepted in previous years had an average composite 30+ ACT or an average total 1330+ SAT.
Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.
Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.
This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester. Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
