All applicants, both domestic and international, are eligible to apply for need-based financial assistance and academic (merit-based) scholarships. We have a long tradition of working individually with the families of our students to customize a financial aid award that ensures cost does not stand in the way of attending Washington University. Please contact the University's office of Student Financial Services
with any questions or for more information about need-based financial assistance.
Academic scholarships and fellowships are merit-based, and a number of full-tuition and partial-tuition scholarships are available. For more information, please visit our Undergraduate Admissions
In addition, Washington University offers an interest-free payment plan that allows students to spread yearly tuition payments over 10, nine or eight months, starting June 1, July 1, or August 1. The deadline to enroll is August 1.
3/2 BSBA and graduate business study
Our 3/2 programs allow you to extend your studies to five years and earn both your BSBA and a graduate business degree – MBA, Master of Accounting, or Master of Science in Finance. If you decide to pursue a 3/2 program, you’ll apply for financial aid as an undergraduate for the first four years of study and as a graduate student during the fifth year. Loan limits for graduate students are higher than for undergraduates. You can read more in Types of Loans. Contact Graduate Business Financial Aid for information specific to your circumstances.
