College Access and Washington University
College Access courses are for-credit, undergraduate courses that typically count toward prematriculation credit. Upon completion, students may request a transcript from Washington University that will list their coursework. Every university has its own prematriculation transfer credit policy, and we encourage students to do their research as they make future plans. For current guidelines on pre-matriculation credit for the College of Arts & Sciences at Washington University please visit: http://college.artsci.wustl.edu/placement_credit
It is important to note that participation in College Access does not guarantee admission to Washington University.
