Instructions on how to set up MySLU, Banner and email
University communications are most commonly sent via email, so it is important you check your SLU email regularly. MySLU gives you access to Banner, where you can register for classes, check your grades, and view your student account. Some MBA classes utilize Blackboard, which can also be accessed via MySLU.
Student Financial Services
The university’s Office of Student Financial Services administers financial aid. Your financial aid counselor is assigned based on your program and last name.
Student Health Services
The student health forms included in your admission packet are required to be sent to the Student Health Services office for all students of Saint Louis University. The deadline to turn in your form to SHS is two weeks prior to the start of registration for the upcoming term. Since the forms contain private information, we ask that you deliver your forms to SHS. Please do not ask the Graduate Business Programs Office to do it for you. If you do not turn in your forms, a hold will be placed on your student account.
Parking and Card Services
The Office of Parking and Card Services manages student IDs and parking permits. While not required, it is strongly recommended that you obtain a Student ID. Your Student ID provides access to the library and recreation center. Parking permits can be purchased for $155 per semester.
If you are receiving tuition reimbursement from your employer, you are eligible to have your payment deferred until the end of the term. It is required you sign up for tuition deferment every semester.
The Student Resources website is managed by Graduate Business Programs. Links to class schedules, academic policies, as well as additional information can be found here.
You can search for and purchase textbooks at the university’s bookstore. If you are unable to pick up your books during business hours, you can call the bookstore and request your books be delivered to the Graduate Business Programs Office (Cook Hall 132). Please note that some classes will not require textbooks.
Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
The Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness is dedicated to providing a safe campus for Saint Louis University students, faculty, staff, and visitors. In addition, DPSEP is responsible for the Emergency Notification System, which will alert you of campus closures in the event of severe weather.
