For New Students

Congratulations on your decision to join us at William & Mary! We encourage you to explore all that lies ahead as a new student joining our community.

The Fall 2024 Tribe Guide for new students and their supporters is available!
Before You Arrive

You can review a full list of new student requirements, attend an in-person or virtual welcome event in your geographic area, or sign-up for a pre-orientation program to start getting to know campus and your forever friends even earlier! And then make sure to follow your Tribe Guide Checklist so all your to-do's become all-done's. 

When You Arrive

When you arrive for Orientation, be ready because we are going to take you right up until the First Day of Classes. We can't wait to help you Find Your Experience here at W&M!

Who comes here belongs here.
