Admission & Aid
Get to know the W&M difference.
William & Mary is a top research university grounded in the liberal arts and sciences. We cultivate creative thinkers, principled leaders and compassionate global citizens. Together, we're making a meaningful difference in our communities, the state, the nation and the world.
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 Robert Gates and Patton Oswalt as alumni?
Start by taking a virtual tour or a guided tour of campus and checking out our 54 undergraduate majors and 62 minors with more than 100 tracks available. They're taught by some of the most committed professors in America who are also internationally and nationally recognized scholars. And don’t forget our more than 30 graduate and professional degree programs, 14 graduate certificate programs and available online programs in arts and sciences, business, education, law and marine science. You’ll see why we're consistently ranked among the top public universities by U.S. News & World Report.
When you’re ready to apply, our undergraduate admission and graduate admission staff are here to make your life easier. William & Mary is ranked among the top “best buy” colleges in the nation, due in no small part to our financial aid.
