Federal law requires colleges and universities to provide consumer information to prospective students and their families. Please go to the Washington University in St. Louis website for consumer information concerning our notice of availability of institutional and financial aid information; contact information for assistance in obtaining institutional or financial aid information; and general institution information, including privacy of student records, services for students with disabilities, educational programs, accreditations, costs, computer use and copyright infringement policies, student diversity, price of attendance, refund and withdrawal policies, teacher preparation information, student financial assistance (assistance that is available from federal, state, local, and institutional programs; federal student financial aid penalties for drug law violations; and student loan information), health and safety information, student outcome information (retention rate, graduation rate, job placement, etc.), our intercollegiate athletic program participation rates, financial support data, and voter registration information.

Washington University encourages and gives full consideration to all applicants for admission, financial aid, and employment. The university does not discriminate in access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, disability, or genetic information. Applicants with a prior criminal history will not be automatically disqualified from consideration for admission. Inquiries about compliance should be addressed to the Vice Chancellor for Human Resources, Washington University, Campus Box 1184, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130.

Our University Police Department is available 24/7. Each year we publish Safety and Security, a brochure detailing what to do and whom to contact in an emergency, as well as publishing our federally required annual security and fire safety reports, containing campus crime and fire statistics, and key university policies and procedures. You may access the Safety and Security brochure on the Washington University Police Department website, or a paper copy will be provided to you upon request.
