Apply to UMW

The University of Mary Washington welcomes your application for admission. UMW uses The Common Application exclusively.

Apply Online Using the Common Application

Please submit The Common Application, essay, and application fee or approved waiver online. The Common Application Online will be updated shortly to reflect UMW’s brand new Early Decision application option. UMW specific questions may not be available for a brief period of time while Early Decision is added, but you may continue to work on your Common Application. We appreciate your patience as we implement this recent change.
