Admit It! It may be hard to believe, but our first Early Decision deadline is less than one month away! Here in Williamsburg, autumn colors are in full swing and our community is enjoying the pumpkin patches and apple cider stands nearby. Our office has been happily sharing freshly-picked apples and homemade cookies to celebrate the season. Staff members have also been busy visiting high schools all across the country, both virtually and in-person this year. We’re thankful for the opportunity to meet you all!
We will soon begin reading applications and start the process of welcoming the incoming students of 2022, first-years and transfers. Each of you have had unique life experiences and educational journeys and we can’t wait to hear how they lead you to apply to W&M. We love seeing the different courses you have taken, reading all about your favorite extracurricular activities, and most importantly, hearing your own voice and personality shine in your essays.
While our application deadlines may still be a month or two away, some other important documents just opened for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available. Similarly, to be eligible for institutional need-based aid, we also ask students to complete the CSS Profile. Our federal school code for the FAFSA is 003705 and for the CSS Profile our school code is 5115.
Through the financial aid process, we are able to make William & Mary one of the most affordable public universities in Virginia. By doing so, we provide increased access to high quality education, which is why the Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance rank us as a “Best Value” among national universities. When you apply to William & Mary and for financial aid, you take the first steps in what could ultimately lead to one of the best universities in the nation, and possibly, the lowest actual cost of attendance for you and your family. Feel free to check out our Financial Aid webpage for more information.
As always, you can contact your Regional Counselor with any questions. We look forward to getting to know you!
