William & Mary's reputation for academic success speaks for itself. The students here are eager to be challenged, to be engaged, to inspire, and to be inspired. Until this point, you have been actively involved in the educational development of your student, but now it is time to let your son or daughter make those tough decisions themselves. What major should he or she choose, what areas peak his or her interest, what happens if he or she begins to struggle? Well, the Parent & Family Program offers a list of resources to help you support your student in their academic pursuits and needs.
You can find additional resources for parents and families in the footer of every page of the W&M website. There you will find quick access to many university resources that may come in handy over the coming years.
The Office of Academic Advising will answer any of your questions related to degree requirements and transfer credits. The office is also responsible for pairing each incoming student with a faculty advisor for freshman and sophomore year. The advisor will work with the student to develop a personalized course of study.
The Dean of Students Office, through the Academic Enrichment Program, offers weekly programming on topics such as strategic learning, time management, and preparation for finals. Additional resources are available through the Tribe TutorZone and the Writing Resource Center.
The Global Education Office, located in the Wendy & Emery Reves Center for International Studies, is responsible for all matters related to study abroad.
The University Registrar's office provides students with various resources, including help with class registration, transcript requests and exam schedules.
