Admitted Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Williams! 

Congratulations, once again, on your admission to Williams College! This is no small feat, and we hope you’ve taken some time to celebrate your accomplishment.

We invite you and your family to join us in April for Williams Previews, our program for admitted students. Though some of you have visited campus already, we look forward to welcoming you as official Ephs! Please see below for details on Previews.

You can respond to your offer of admission by logging into your My Williams Account. Students admitted under the Early Decision program or who matched through QuestBridge must confirm their place in the Class of 2023 by Friday, January 4, 2019.

Once you’ve enrolled, the Dean’s Office will be in touch with information about housing, registering for courses, academic advising and more. Visit the New Ephs site for a snapshot of what to expect in the coming months.

  • Williams Previews, our program for admitted students, will be held on April 17 and 18, 2019. Spend the night in one of our dorms, eat in a dining hall, attend panels, participate in classes, meet faculty, get to know current Ephs, and experience what it will be like to call Williams home for the next four years! Williams Previews begins at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, April 17 and continues through 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 18. If you can’t stay for the entire event, you are welcome to join us for any portion.

    You can check out the preliminary schedule for Williams Previews here. Please log into your My Williams Account to register by April 10.

    Transportation and Overnight Hosting Information
    Complimentary shuttles will be provided between Williams and Albany International Airport and Albany-Rensselaer Train Station on April 16, 17 and 18. You can sign up for a shuttle and learn more about being hosted by a current student when you register for Previews. As you plan, please note that travel time from the airport and train station to campus is approximately one hour. Details about traveling to Williamstown, including car service and hotel information, can be found on our visitors page.

  • Don’t worry! You can visit whenever it makes the most sense for you. Admission staff will be available to speak with admitted students weekdays throughout April. Please see our visit calendar to sign up for a campus tour and information session.

    If you’d like to stay overnight with a current student while you are on campus, you are more than welcome to do so. The following dates are available for an overnight: April 3-4, 7-11, or 21-25.  Please check back in March for scheduling information.

  • Our goal is to make your visit to Williams as engaging and enjoyable as possible. To request a non-English language or ASL interpreter for a family member, or if you have other requests, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make appropriate arrangements.

  • We’ve offered you a spot in the Class of 2023, and we will do everything we can to make sure you can afford to attend. If you have any questions about financial aid, you can reach a financial aid counselor at [email protected] or 413.597.4181. If you are visiting for Previews, you may want to attend the financial aid session and stop by the office to connect with the staff.
