Pre-College, Access and TRIO Programs

Saint Louis University Pre-College, Access and TRIO Programs is dedicated to the recruitment, retention and graduation of diverse student populations, especially first-generation college students.

Our undergraduate programs include the Students' Opportunity for Achievement and Resources Program (SOAR), the Billiken Success Program, and peer mentoring.

Our pre-college programs include TRIO Educational Talent Search, TRIO Upward Bound, and collaborations with community organizations such as College Bound, Inspire STL Prep-Academy and others.

Pre-College, Access and TRIO Programs offers unique programming that supports academic success for pre-college students and SLU undergraduates.

Our Mission

Pre-College, Access and TRIO Programs promotes educational opportunity, success, persistence, and graduation with first-generation, low-income students, students from underrepresented groups, and for those whose academic preparation may not have thoroughly prepared them for college and career success.

We engage the greater St. Louis community to cultivate and celebrate learning at all levels to further the mission of the Division of Enrollment Management and Saint Louis University.

Our Vision

As a unit, we empower students for college and career success.
