In 2019, Jesuit launched a Dual Enrollment program in conjunction with Saint Louis University, the esteemed, national Jesuit university. Successful completion of these courses gives Jesuit students college credit from SLU, which transfer to more than 500 colleges and universities.
The Jesuit teachers who lead the Dual Enrollment courses have passed certifications to become Adjunct Professors. They also all have Master's degrees with 18 credits in what they teach, and twice annually must complete professional development, which can be done virtually.
For Jesuit students, there is a steeply discounted fee per course to receive the college credit, a fraction what SLU students pay per credit. Jesuit students also can enroll in the course but not pursue the Dual Enrollment option and therefore not pay any fees.
For 2021-22, Jesuit is offering 18 Dual Enrollment courses with SLU, plus one Dual Enrollment course with Creighton University (Multivariable Calculus). Listed below are the Dual Enrollment courses at Jesuit with SLU. Seven of the 18 offer the college credit in the fall semester, seven offer it in the spring semester, and four offer it in both semesters, meaning one school year of these four courses can earn Jesuit students 6 college credits from SLU and the 500+ colleges and universities that accept SLU credits.
