Required Materials

The completed online application must include unofficial copies of all academic transcripts and self- reported GMAT or GRE scores (optional), with official score reports sent directly to the university. Applicants are also required to submit a current, one-page professional resume and the essay(s). There is no application fee and, while applicants will provide contact information for one recommender, a recommendation is not required either.

Applicants may choose to submit an application without a standardized test score if they meet any one of the following criteria:

  • They have a strong undergraduate GPA from a US institution.
  • They have demonstrated quantitative skills in prior academic coursework and/or professional experience.
  • They have earned an advanced or terminal degree (JD, MD, PhD or quantitative MS degree).
  • They have earned a quantitatively oriented professional certificate (CPA, CFA).
  • They hold (or have held) an officer’s rank in the military.

International applicants whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL or IELTS scores. However, there are waiver conditions available based on citizenship or education.

Official transcripts and official test scores must be submitted two weeks before orientation begins.

The Interview

WashU Olin issues interview invitations. As part of the application process, applicants also complete a video interview.
