Welcome to 1818

1818 is a dual enrollment program through St. Louis University (SLU) that provides motivated students the opportunity to enroll in college-credit bearing courses while still in high school. Founded in 1959, the 1818 curriculum has been developed over the past 60 years, with hundreds of partner institutions.

1818 exposes students to rigorous classes and fosters a population of students that are familiar with the demands of a college curriculum and who are prepared to continue their education abroad. The program is available to institutions regionally, nationally, and, in 2019, SLU partnered with IPERC to make 1818 a college option for thousands of students worldwide.

American College Credit Consortium (ACCC):

The ACCC is a group of elite universities partnered with IPERC. ACC universities agree to accept the credits earned by students who participate in the ACCP program and help streamline the admission process for International Students. Each Consortium University establishes its own admission criteria, and only those students who meet these criteria will be admitted to the Consortium University.
