WashU Preview

WashU Preview is a selective, invitation-based program for high school seniors historically underrepresented in higher education. Students will participate in a virtual experience designed to introduce students to WashU’s community, including academics, campus life, and special programs.

Past attendees have included underrepresented students of color, first-generation students, and students from low-income backgrounds.
