Overview of the INTO center

Established in September 2015, INTO Saint Louis University provides international students with greater access to a world-class education and a unique study experience in the heart of the US. Ranked No. 97 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, the university offers more than 180 bachelor’s, masters and doctoral degrees in a wide variety of subject areas. Set on more than 270 acres in Midtown St. Louis, SLU’s urban campus is just steps from the city’s vibrant arts and entertainment district.

As the oldest university west of the Mississippi, SLU has a legacy of bringing higher education to those who have had previously limited access. In partnership with INTO, the university has enhanced educational opportunities for international students though the development of Pathway programmes at the undergraduate and graduate level.

In addition to its academic excellence, students derive lifelong benefit from the school’s values-based and mission-driven approach.
