Fall is a great time to visit campus. Classes are in session, students are out and about, and the weather is gorgeous...on most days at least. In addition to our weekday information sessions and tours, we offer Fall Focus programs to offer students a more in-depth campus experience. During the fall semester, students can interview (available to high school seniors only when registration opens in early September), visit a class and shadow a W&M student for a day. Fall in love with W&M through any one of these visit options.
The fall is also a great time to get started on your application. Essays and extracurricular resumes sadly won't write themselves. W&M is an exclusive user of the Common Application which is available online now. If you're already bleeding green and gold, consider Early Decision (November 1 application deadline).
While there's no single formula for getting into William & Mary, we've tried to make the application process as straightforward as possible. Links for detailed information about application requirements and processes are found below. We also encourage you to meet the Admission Committee and learn more about the deans who will be reviewing your applications in the coming months.
