Washington University’s five undergraduate divisions offer different curricula for different areas of academic interest. But, we ask you to indicate which of the five schools is your primary choice now, so we can provide effective academic advising from the start to help you achieve your goals.
While there are university wide admission standards common to all the schools, we look for the right preparation for each curriculum. Students applying to Olin Business School should have completed coursework in math at least through the pre-calculus level with calculus highly recommended.
Students applying to McKelvy School of Engineering and/or students who are interested in pre-med should have completed coursework in physics and chemistry, as well as coursework in math at least through the pre-calculus level with calculus highly recommended. Students interested in studying architecture or art should demonstrate interest, skill, or background in art and design by highlighting relevant course work or extracurricular activity.
Please have your parent(s) complete the School Report in lieu of the Teacher Evaluation. Admission decisions at Wash are based on a combination of factors, including the high school transcript, test scores, personal essay, teacher evaluation, and extracurricular activities.
We do not attach specific weights to individual components of the decision, as a holistic view of each student is taken. IMPORTANT NOTE: Wash has adopted a one-year test optional policy for applicants in 2021.
The academic rigor, a high school’s grading system, and whether Gas and/or ranks (if available) are weighted or unweighted are all taken into account when reviewing each student’s application. We evaluate each student’s academic record in the context of how well he or she took advantage of the opportunities that were available in his or her particular high school.
Extracurricular activities are one of the factors considered when making admissions decisions at Washington University. Instead of a laundry list of activities, we look for those to which the student has shown commitment over time, the leadership roles that have developed, etc.
We also understand that for many students, an after-school job or caring for a sibling or relative will be the primary extracurricular activity or commitment. “Demonstrated interest” refers to ways that you can explore or research a college or university to learn more about us.
One of the best ways to do this is through a campus visit (if feasible) to experience our community first hand. Please know that we don’t expect you to do all these things, and demonstrating interest in more than one way is not necessarily better.
Feel free to ask us questions about our campus, programs, and community that may not be on our website, and share your academic and personal interests with us. Students who elect or are unable to provide SAT or ACT scores are encouraged to provide a Teacher Evaluation from a teacher in their area of academic interest who can address academic readiness in the area.
While some students choose to submit an additional teacher recommendation, others choose to submit an extra letter of recommendation from a coach, an employer, or a member of the clergy, because that person can provide unique insights that teachers may not include. We hope this policy will make the application more accessible for you, since you will no longer have to formally request scores and pay for them to be sent to Wash.
For the ACT, Washington University considers your highest section scores across all the test dates that you submit. If you take both the ACT and SAT, we will consider whichever set of scores is most advantageous to you.
Undocumented students receive the same admissions review as all applicants to our undergraduate programs. IMPORTANT NOTE: Wash has adopted a one-year test optional policy for applicants in 2021.
