One-Year Test Optional Policy for Applicants in 2021
As part of our commitment to always put students first, WashU will provide all applicants for the class entering in Fall 2021 the option of whether to submit standardized test scores when they apply. We believe standardized test scores provide us with essential information about an applicant’s preparation for success at WashU. However, given the current context, students who are unable to, or who elect not to, submit SAT or ACT scores, will have the standardized testing requirement waived. To learn more, visit our Fall 2021 Applicant Info page.
