The Dual Admissions Program at UMSL allows students enrolled at either St. Louis Community College or Southwestern Illinois College who are working toward an associates degree to get better connected with UMSL now.

The UMSL Dual Admissions Program requires that students meet regularly with an UMSL transfer specialist to stay on track to complete their associate degree while maximizing transfer credit and maintaining good academic standing.

While students in the Dual Admissions Program will only attend classes at the community college while earning their associates degree, they will have access to resources on UMSL's campus such as university tutoring, computer labs, writing and math centers, career services, university libraries, Veterans Center, ROTC program and much more. Students also have the option to pay a fee each semester to use the Recreation Center and to participate in intramural sports and recreational activities. Dual students can also attend free Triton athletic events, join student organizations, purchase discount tickets at the Touhill Performing Arts Center, access health and wellness services, and live on campus!
