dollars & sense

Ivy league caliber, state school price.

What does it mean to be a "Public Ivy?" It means that William & Mary offers an exceptional liberal arts education — small classes (12:1 student-to-faculty ratio), inspiring professors, hands-on research and a vibrant intellectual and social community — for an exceptional value. Even out-of-state students pay less than they would at private universities of our academic caliber.

And don't let the name fool you. The "College" of William & Mary is really a full university with nationally ranked undergraduate, graduate and professional programs spread across arts and sciences, law, business, education and marine science. This is a big education with a personal focus; an education that prepares our graduates for creative, fulfilling (and well-paying) careers across the disciplines and around the world.

Come to William & Mary. It just makes sense.
