Fall Weather, Applications, and FAFSA! Oh My!

Admit It! It may be hard to believe, but our first Early Decision deadline is less than one month away! Here in Williamsburg, the leaves are just starting to change and our community is welcoming the fall weather and activities. Our staff members have been busy virtually travelling to high schools all across the country, sharing all that W&M has to offer and meeting our wonderful prospective students. While the college admissions process may be looking a little different this year, we’re thankful for the opportunity to virtually meet you all and find joy in the simple pleasures of falling leaves and pumpkin spice. 

We can’t wait to start reading your applications and begin the process of welcoming the incoming students of 2021, 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 exciting courses some of you have taken, reading all about your unique extracurricular activities, and most importantly, hearing your own voice and personality shine through in your essays. 

While our application deadlines may still be a month or two away, some other important documents just opened for the 2021-2022 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.
