WashU Preview

WashU Preview is designed to connect diverse students (such as first-generation to college students, LGBTQIA+ students, and students from low-income and/or rural backgrounds) with our collaborative, innovative, and passionate community.

Through events with current students, academic deans, and support services and resources, attendees will learn what makes WashU one of the top college experiences in the U.S. and how to best tell their story in the application process.

WashU Preview is an invitation-based program. To be considered, students should fill out a Getting to Know You form, by Friday, June 2, 2023, at 11:59 pm CT.

I thoroughly enjoyed the WashU Preview events! I gained a lot of information about WashU regarding what the campus was like, the education, the students, and the community as a whole. Most of all, I really enjoyed the breakfast with the Deans. I’m glad to have participated and am proud to say I will be applying!

Preference for WashU Preview is given to students who are underrepresented students of color, first-generation to college students, LGBTQIA+, students from low-income backgrounds, and/or students from rural backgrounds as the program is designed to connect diverse students with our collaborative, innovative, and passionate community.

When will I know if I’m invited to WashU Preview?

We expect to send invitations to WashU Preview by June 26, 2023. Students will be notified via email about their decision.

I really enjoyed how engaging WashU Preview was. I learned so much about what WashU offers and about the greater community.
