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

*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.
