Small. Smart. Historic. It's the W&M difference.

Welcome to William & Mary, one of America’s oldest and best universities.

We bet you have a lot of questions. For instance, who is W&M? What makes our students so extraordinary? For that matter, what exactly is a Public Ivy? And what does it mean to go to a university that claims both Thomas Jefferson and Jon Stewart as alumni?

Start by checking out our 35 undergraduate programs, taught by the most committed professors in America (that’s an actual statistic) who are also internationally and nationally recognized scholars. And don’t forget our 10 graduate programs in Arts & Sciences, and our top-ranked professional schools in law, education, business and marine science. You’ll see why U.S. News and World Report ranked us sixth among all public universities.

When you’re ready to apply, our undergraduate admission and graduate admission staff are here to make your life easier. William & Mary is consistently ranked among the top “best buy” colleges in the nation, due in no small part to our financial aid.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you want to plan your campus visit.
