Test Scores
SAT code: 6929

WashU requires either the SAT or ACT (writing is not required). SAT Subject tests are not required.

WashU accepts self-reported scores on the QuestBridge application. If you enroll at WashU and submitted unofficial scores, you will be asked at that point to send official score reports from testing agencies.

Test results from any of your high school years are acceptable, though senior-year testing is encouraged.

WashU considers only the highest individual scores, whenever they occurred.

The last test date accepted for QuestBridge will be the September testing for ACT and the October testing for SAT.
