Graduate Admission

Ready to take the next step? Here's where it all starts.

Success in one of W&M’s nationally ranked graduate or professional programs depends on individual drive, sharp academic skills and a proven passion for the subject. The admission process is no different. If you’re thinking about applying to a department in Arts & Sciences, for example, read the information on the department’s website and identify professors who are working in the field you want to study.

The same is true of admission requirements. Check each program’s website to learn exactly what needs to be handed in and when. Some programs have online applications, while some need to be downloaded and mailed in. There are different standardized test requirements for different degree programs. Don’t drive yourself crazy taking the GMAT if all you really need is the LSAT or GRE.

Most applications require two or three letters of recommendation and some sort of standardized test, so we recommend you get started early. The first step is to check out the following links for detailed application instructions and requirements:
