If you are applying to the College of Art, a portfolio is required. If you are applying to the College of Architecture, a portfolio is recommended, but not required. (It is only required if you wish to be considered for the Fitzgibbon Scholarship in Architecture). These portfolios should be submitted through the SlideRoom function of the Common Application. There is no charge for portfolios submitted for Art and Architecture applicants. Please see Portfolio Guidelines for more information
If you wish to submit a “Maker Portfolio” highlighting a project you have made that you would like the School of Engineering & Applied Science to consider, please submit it through the SlideRoom function of the Common Application. While a “Maker Portfolio” is not required, the School is dedicated to encouraging Makers and will review the portfolio with interest.
For applicants to the College of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering & Applied Science, and Olin Business School: If you decide to submit a supplement (athletic, performing arts, research, etc.), SlideRoom will charge you a $10 fee for each submission. These supplements are not required. We encourage you to present yourself the best you can within the format of the Common Application, namely in the extracurricular, essay, and additional information sections. (Please note: If you qualify for a Common Application or a WashU fee waiver, the SlideRoom fee will automatically be waived.)
