About Saint Louis University INTO Pathway

St. Louis University's INTO University Partner's Pathway Program in Missouri offers a pathway program for international students who do not meet the requirements for direct entry. International students can also enroll in an academic English program, which is designed for students whose English language skills do not meet the requirements for a pathway program. After completing the academic English program, students can progress to an undergraduate or graduate pathway program. These pathway programs combine intensive language study, academic skills development, and credit-bearing coursework.

Saint Louis University is a high-quality academic destination, attracting 973 international students from more than 70 countries around the world. Our rich diversity is what makes us who we are.

What to Expect

At SLU, your education isn't limited to the classroom. As a first-year student in the INTO pathway program, you can expect innovative programs to help your successful transition into the university. New students are grouped into Learning Communities, which provide creative academic support.

You will be encouraged to challenge your thinking and develop strong answers. As a major research institution, we are dedicated to teaching you how to think logically, argue pointedly and express yourself clearly. SLU is also one of only nine Catholic universities with a high or very-high research distinction. Throughout our university and surrounding communities, we have a shared value of supporting the common good. SLU created these values to encourage staff and students to adopt the highest standards of conduct for both personal and professional practice.

Living in St.Louis

Just steps away from SLU, the Grand Center arts district of St. Louis is home to theaters, museums, restaurants and more. Here, you can watch a touring Broadway musical, listen to the world-class St. Louis Symphony Orchestra or enjoy a contemporary art exhibit.

Known as the “Gateway City,” St. Louis is rich in American history, symbolized by the giant stainless steel Gateway Arch, standing 192 meters high on the banks of the Mississippi River.

St. Louis claims a number of significant cultural gems, including the world famous Gateway Arch; Forest Park, which is larger than New York City’s Central Park and contains the city’s free zoo, art museum, science center and history museum; and City Museum, which combines art and fun through recycled architecture.


SLU is committed to helping talented and ambitious international students like you achieve their goals of studying at a world-class US university. They award scholarships for their Pathway programs in amounts that are typically up to $16,000 per year per qualified student.
