New Demonstrated Interest Policy Effective Immediately 

As part of our commitment to ensure all applicants, regardless of financial circumstance, ability to travel or familiarity with the college admissions process, receive equal consideration in our review and selection of applicants, WashU will no longer consider demonstrated interest (such as visiting campus, attending an event, or emailing with a member of the admissions staff) as a factor in making admission decisions or in the admission decision process. In doing so, we can create and implement a truly equitable admissions process and support our goal to build a community of talented and diverse young people. 

This change is in addition to our test optional policy for fall 2022 applicants. First-year and transfer applicants again have a choice about whether to submit standardized test scores or use the waiver.
