Leveling the playing field

College admission based on your abilities, not on your ability to pay.

WashU has announced the Gateway to Success Initiative, a $1 Billion additional financial aid commitment from the university that allows us to be immediately and forever “need blind” in our admission process for first-year domestic applicants. Your ability to pay tuition will never be part of the admission decision process.

In addition, we no longer consider demonstrated interest as a factor in making admissions decisions.

And, we have extended our test optional policy for applicants through 2024.


WashU is committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated need so you can be 100% focused on chasing your dreams and realizing your ambitions. We know college is a big investment, which is why we have created several initiatives to set our students up for success during their time at WashU and beyond.


We’re a community of individuals who can tackle any challenge.
Our community celebrates the diversity on our campus and comes together to learn more about one another and listen to each other’s ideas.

After WashU

Without hesitation, the community is the reason why I chose WashU. From the moment I stepped on campus, I felt this overwhelming sense of kindness and positivity. I knew not only would I love it here and have such a good time, but I would grow as a person and student.
