Mathematics, B.S. (Harris-Stowe State University) and Biomedical Engineering, B.S. Dual Degree

The Mathematics, B.S. and Biomedical Engineering, B.S Dual Degree program will allow qualified students the opportunity to earn two bachelor's degrees, one at Harris-Stowe State University (HSSU) and one at Saint Louis University (SLU). Students will start their program at HSSU, then take courses at both institutions before earning a bachelor's at HSSU and then their second bachelor's at SLU.

For additional information, see the catalog entries for the following SLU programs:

Harris-Stowe State University Mathematics, B.S.

Biomedical Engineering, B.S.

Student Requirements

Students must complete Calculus I with a grade of C or better at HSSU prior to enrolling in courses at SLU. HSSU must apply to this program through the HSSU dual enrollment process. 

After successfully completing any prerequisite courses, HSSU students may enroll in SLU courses as visiting inter-university students prior to applying to SLU as degree-seeking students.

Students should apply to SLU as degree-seeking students after completing a minimum of 90 credits of the bachelor's degree at HSSU (including any inter-university courses at SLU). Students will apply to SLU through the standard admission procedures. Students with a HSSU grade point average of 2.70 or higher will be guaranteed admission into SLU. SLU will waive all application fees and not require a tuition deposit. 

Transfer Credit

All courses with a grade of C or higher, and their associated credits, outlined in the approved roadmap accepted toward the bachelor's degree at HSSU will be accepted toward the bachelor's degree at SLU. 

All courses outside the program plan will be articulated through standard procedures at SLU. 

Non-Course Requirements

All Science and Engineering B.A. and B.S. students must complete an exit interview/survey near the end of their bachelor's program.
