French for College Credit French 3, French 4, and French 5 are available to my students for college credit through the ACP Program of the University of Missouri, St. Louis (UMSL). Qualifying students pay only about 1/5 of the cost of taking the course on the UMSL campus, and receive 5 college credits for French 3 or 4, and 3 credits for French 5. Our French 3 class is considered the equivalent of UMSL's 1st semester course, "French 1001: French I", our French 4 class is considered the equivalent of UMSL's 2nd semester course, "French 1002: French II", and our French 5 class is considered the equivalent of UMSL's 3rd semester course, "French 2101: Intermediate French Language and Culture I". The fee in the 2018-19 school year is $68 per credit hour ($340 for the 5-credit courses; $204 for the 3-credit course.)
These UMSL credits are transferable to many colleges -- a student does not have to attend UMSL during college years in order for this credit to be used. Saint Louis University, Maryville University, and most Missouri state universities accept the credit (Truman, Springfield, Cape, Mizzou, Rolla, UMKC), but, as a rule, high-priced private schools might not (Wash U does not). Smaller private schools may, and it is always best to find the phone number of the Modern Language department at the university you're interested in, and call to ask if they accept "Advanced College Credit for French" from your high school program.

PIERRE LACLEDE HONORS COLLEGE at UMSL
Students should be aware that on the UMSL campus, there is also a small honors-college program, known as the Pierre Laclede Honors College. This college is a school-within-a-school, meant for high-achieving students. The classes are usually smaller than those that are part of the general UMSL campus. Additional scholarships for all qualified applicants are available (in addition to the "College Years Scholarship"), and housing is also available for the Pierre Laclede Honors College. For more information, click here .
PLEASE NOTE: Annually, there is an "Honors Day" open house held at the campus. The event is usually held at the Provinicial House Building ( directions here ). To attend, reserve your spot by calling (314) 516-7769 OR email at email@example.com. Check back here for more information, later in the school year.

(NOTE: Remember that if you are requesting a transcript at the end of your senior year of high school, that year's UMSL/PHS grade will not yet have been sent in to UMSL... so, you must write on your transcript request form, "Hold until grades are posted for 2017-18" so that your transcript will include this school year's grade [unless your UMSL course was from a previous year].)
UMSL-Bound College Years Scholarship
• UMSL College Years Scholarship ("UMSL- Bound Scholarship") Students who take a high school course for college credit through UMSL are eligible to apply for a yearly scholarship of $3,000 for attending UMSL when they are college students.
