What is the difference between the 2-year option and the 3-year option?
Participants in the Undergraduate 2-year option earn two degrees, a liberal arts degree from their current school and an engineering degree from WashU, typically following a 3-2 or 4-2 schedule.
Participants in the Graduate 3-year Option complete both a liberal arts degree from their current school and then an engineering undergraduate degree and engineering master’s degree in three years at WashU, typically following a 3-3 or 4-3 schedule. Both commonly enter WashU after their junior or senior year.
What are the financial aid possibilities for both options?
All students who enter the Graduate 3-year Option are awarded the Graduate Affiliation Scholarship which guarantees a 50 percent tuition discount for the first year, a 55 percent discount the second year and a 60 percent discount the third year. International and domestic students are eligible.
Domestic students who enter the Undergraduate 2-year Option may also be eligible for federal grants, student loans and part-time employment. Participants in the Undergraduate 2-year option are classified as an undergraduate student and therefore may qualify for undergraduate financial support. If you are currently a senior, you may be eligible for more undergraduate support if you wait and graduate with both undergraduate degrees from both institutions at the same time.
