Students who successfully complete an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma with 5, 6, or 7 on the higher level exams may receive consideration for credit. Read more about our IB Policy. Advanced (A-Level) courses of C or higher will receive consideration for credit on an individual evaluation. A minimum score of a four on an advance-placement (AP) exam is necessary for any consideration of credit or placement to be given.
Yes, W&J welcomes applications from international transfer students. If you have completed at least a semester of courses at university level, you should apply as a transfer student. The Registrar will decide which courses will receive credit for transfer. Please note that if you have already completed a university degree, you cannot apply for admission to W&J.
While we strive to create an active community of learners and doers, we understand that not all schools are able to offer extracurricular activities. If you have been active in a club, played a sport, held a job, served in the community, or wish to tell us more about your accomplishments, you may submit a CV detailing your involvement. However it is not a requirement. We do not encourage you to submit certificates of extracurricular achievements, i.e. certificates of participation in Model UN, Math Olympiads, etc.
Washington & Jefferson College no longer requires applicants to submit standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) as a part of the admission process. Testing is only one of many measures of potential academic success and often not the strongest. View our full score-optional policy. Students who choose to apply Score Optional will be given full consideration, with no disadvantage for admission.
W&J would prefer to receive original documents but understands that this is not always possible. If you cannot send originals, please have your school counselor or headmaster verify their authenticity with their signature and school stamp/seal (if applicable). You may also take them to a Fulbright or EducationUSA office for verification. Find an EducationUSA advising center near you.
