Admission & Aid

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 more than 40 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 over 40 graduate and professional degree programs in arts and sciences, business, education, law and marine science. You’ll see why U.S. News and World Report ranked us sixth among all public universities, and one of the top universities for undergraduate teaching in the country (second only to Princeton).

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.
