Applying with the Common Application instead? You will receive the same benefits and equal admission consideration (including an application fee waiver).

What We Need from You

The following items are required for your application:

  • Completed and signed application form
  • Admission essay/personal statement
  • SAT or ACT scores*
  • One counselor recommendation
  • Official transcript

The following items are recommended for your application:

  • Teacher recommendation
  • Activities sheet or résumé

*Students submitting SAT or ACT scores may share either official or self-reported scores. Students sharing self-reported scores will not be required to submit official score reports unless they are admitted and choose to enroll. You are able to self-report test scores through the WC Application or Common Application. You will not need to superscore your own results or recalculate your scores in any way; send your scores exactly as you receive them. To be considered official, scores must be sent to Washington College directly from the testing agency. Or login to your account (enrollment.washcoll.edu/apply/status) to complete and submit the test optional e-form here.
