We Admit It! It’s time for our admission office team to head ho-ho-home for winter break. William & Mary and the Office of Undergraduate Admission will be closed for the holidays starting today (December 22) at 5pm. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 3.
Between now and the January 1 Regular Decision application deadline, we will receive the majority of our 14,000+ applications. During this busy time, our operations staff will continue to download applications from the Common App, as well as match your various application materials. Please note that this process can take longer than normal over the next few weeks due to the large volume of materials we are receiving. We promise to keep in touch via email as we are processing your application. Our former (and wonderful) colleague Wendy Livingston wrote a terrific blog detailing exactly what communication you can expect from us over the coming weeks.
Should you have any questions between now and January 1, we are of course here to help. We will be monitoring our firstname.lastname@example.org email account daily throughout the break. While we will not be able to confirm receipt of specific materials, we will be happy to address any questions that you may have about applying to William & Mary.
Please also note that the January 1 application deadline (midnight in your time zone) applies to a student’s actual Common Application. Supplemental materials including transcripts, test scores, and recommendations may still be submitted after the January 1 deadline. As long as your Common Application is submitted on time, we will work with you to make sure your application file is successfully completed.
As we ring in the New Year, we look forward to continuing to build our fantastic class of 2021. Happy Holidays, from our family to yours.
Assistant Dean of Admission
