Customize your campus visit to suit your personal interests once you know the date of your visit. Use the Campus Visit Planner & Registration to view tour and information times for your chosen date.

Tours, which include the main campus and the residence houses, last up to 1.5 hours, so you should wear comfortable shoes.

Optional Interviews

Washington University does not require interviews as part of the admission application process, although we encourage you to visit campus and have an interview during your visit.

To request an interview, schedule your campus visit online. The last day for a senior interview is Friday, January 29, 2017.

In addition to on-campus interviews, we offer interviews with WUSTL alumni across the country and in selected cities overseas through our Alumni and Parent Admission Program (APAP). For more information about optional interviews, please see Campus Visit FAQs.

Portfolio Reviews

Applicants to the College of Art and College of Architecture may request an individual portfolio review during their campus visit. If you are applying to the College of Art, this review would fulfill the portfolio requirement for your application for admission.

If you would like to be considered for the Conway/Proetz Scholarship in Art, your portfolio must be submitted in digital format. Learn more about the portfolio review process.
