Military & Veterans

Our Mission

Here at William & Mary, we are grateful for the service of our nation's military veterans and their families. Our mission is as simple as it is important:  We ensure that all services to our military veterans and their families are commensurate with the character of their service to our nation. If you choose to attend William & Mary, you will have every chance to develop all the necessary components to thrive and succeed academically and beyond. Welcome home.

Robert Gates"My education at William & Mary was a formative experience in my own life, and I believe it continues to be for today's students, including those who have served, are serving, or plan to serve in the military. William & Mary's academic rigor, engaging community, and long-standing commitment to serving our country make it a wonderful place to build upon the leadership skills learned in the armed forces, and equips its graduates with the tools for lifelong success."
