WashU is need blind
As part of our commitment to always put students first, Washington University continues to work toward a more accessible and equitable review process. WashU now has a need-blind admissions process—your ability to pay tuition will never be part of the admission decision process. In addition, we will no longer consider demonstrated interest as a factor in making admissions decisions. And, we are extending our test optional policy for applicants through 2024.
