Decision & Enrollment
Washington University admits students on a rolling basis. Once the application is complete, the decision and enrollment process will be as follows:
Step 1: Receive an Admissions Decision
Approximately two to three weeks after an application is complete, the applicant will be notified of an admissions decision.
Step 2: Review Admissions Documents
Once admitted, students will receive an email with a PDF package containing the following:
Intent to Enroll: Students should return this completed enrollment plan whether or not they accept an offer of admission.
Student Handbook and Honor Code: To ensure the integrity of the learning environment, students in an online program must acknowledge that they understand and will adhere to a set of behavioral standards, including presentation, participation, rules and regulations, academic integrity, and overall Washington University policies.
Required Disclosures: Depending on an applicant’s program of choice, there are required state authorization disclosures, State Bar Association acknowledgements, and acceptance of transferability restrictions for the @WashULaw programs.
Step 3: Return Signed Documents
Students should sign the Intent to Enroll (ITE) and send the ITE back to Washington University electronically.
Step 4: Pay the Enrollment Deposit
After returning the ITE form electronically, students will receive an email with instructions on how to make the enrollment deposit, which is $600 USD. At that point, enrollment will be considered complete, and students can register for courses (if the registration period is open). The deposit will be credited to the student’s first tuition bill.
