Common questions for admitted seniors
We know that for many of your plans for your final semester in high school and visits to all the colleges you have been admitted to have been turned upside down. Keep in mind that while COVID-19 is causing us to think differently about how we engage, at WashU, we can still connect in some creative ways! Be on the lookout for ways to engage with us virtually, so we can celebrate you and all of your accomplishments. And if you have any questions or concerns, we’re only a phone call away.
Q: What if I want to visit before I commit to attend?
A: We would love for you to be able to visit. Unfortunately, we don’t know when we will be able to begin hosting visits again. We encourage you to view our virtual tour, attend a webinar, and engage with us one-on-one through the phone or email. We can answer your questions and help put you in touch with members of our community that can help you make your decision.
Q: What if I can’t submit my enrollment by May 1?
A: We understand that some students may need additional time and that other admitted students are eager to finalize their college plans. Whatever stage you are in, we are happy to work with you. Please reach out to your admissions officer if you have questions or concerns about finalizing your enrollment.
Q: What if my family member would like to talk to someone at the university?
A: Just let your admissions officer know and we will be happy to speak with your family member or put them in touch with a member of our community.
The university continues to closely track the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), and we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of visitors and future WashU students like you, as well as the current WashU students, faculty, and staff. To learn more about our response to COVID-19 and to read our interim visitor policy visit our online resources.
