Undergraduate Admissions


For Parents + Families

Dear Families,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Washington University! Your student is standing at a crossroads during a crucial – and very exciting – time in his or her life. At Washington University, we recognize that college choice is not only the student’s concern, however, that it deeply affects parents and families, as well. We strive to support you in any way possible to help you feel comfortable, stay in touch, and, in turn, support your student. The university even offers a parent and family e-newsletter once students enroll. The e-newsletter, called “Family Ties,” bridges the information gap between student life on campus and family members at home. In the meantime, we hope the resources below will help you become more familiar with Washington University and what life is like for WashU students and parents.

Please never hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to getting to know you and your student!
