Washington University Dual-Degree Partnership

Centre has a long-standing dual degree agreement with Washington University in St. Louis.

While at Centre, students have the option of working toward a major in physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, environmental studies or biology. At the same time, students are expected to complete the common requirements of all Centre graduates, including course-work in the humanities, social sciences, and fundamental questions. While most students opt to complete the typical “3-2” program, it is also possible to complete a “4-2” (four years at Centre followed by two years at a partner school). Some students use this option in order to completely finish a major, complete a double major, or utilize four years of sports eligibility.

A Centre College student is guaranteed admission to Washington University’s prestigious engineering school provided that three criteria are met. The student must:

  • Complete the required preparatory coursework in physics, math, computer science, biology, and chemistry (Depending on the engineering degree pursued at the partner school).
  • Meet the minimum GPA requirement of 3.25 overall GPA and 3.25 GPA in the required courses
  • Receive favorable recommendations from Centre professors.
