Admissions & Registration


Washington University's A&S Summer School has an open admission policy for undergraduate courses and welcomes students from other colleges and universities and adults who are seeking career advancement or enrichment.  A transcript is not required for students who have earned a high school diploma, or its equivalent, by June. However, all students are expected to have completed the stated course prerequisites.

Admission Information By Group

Undergraduate students 

Undergraduates in good standing at a U.S. college or university are welcome to enroll online through the Summer School's open admission policy. Undergraduates are strongly encouraged to consult with their home institution advisor prior to registering. Students may live on campus by requesting housing through Summer Programs and Conference Services, live off-campus through Quadrangle Housing, or obtain housing off-campus independently.

International visiting students 

International students currently studying on an F-1 or J-1 visa sponsored by a U.S. college or university may enroll through the Summer School office. You must first complete a Student Information Form and return it to at least one week prior to your desired course start date.

International visiting students who are not associated with a summer program are required to provide proof of housing while in St. Louis. Please contact the Summer Programs & Conference Services office if you prefer to reside on campus.

If you have questions about your current visa status, please contact Martha Turner within the Office of International Students and Scholars.

International students not currently studying in the U.S. may apply to our International Summer Study program. The application deadline for Session A is April 1, and Session B is May 15.
