Founded in 1818, Saint Louis University is one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious Catholic universities. SLU is recognized for world-class academics, life-changing research, compassionate health care, and a commitment to faith and service.
Within SLU is the School for Professional Studies (SPS). Since 1963, SPS has evolved into one of the most innovative, adult-focused programs in the country. Students can earn a quality SLU education at a lower cost than a traditional undergraduate program. Active military, veterans and first-responders can take advantage of even lower rates. SPS classes are offered completely online and you can study on your own time, anywhere in the world. Our accelerated schedule helps students meet their goals faster with 8-week terms instead of the traditional 16-week semester.
The School for Professional Studies' mission is to offer globally accessible, academic, professional and continuing education programs for students in Saint Louis University's Jesuit tradition of excellence. Our faculty and staff promote a student-centered, innovative and enterprising environment built on a foundation of integrity, accountability and collaboration.
