  • Complete your Housing and Dining Services Agreement after February 20. Contact the Office of Disability Resources at 540/654-1266 with any questions about special housing accommodation requests
  • Attend Orientation for first year students in June, a two-day program required for all incoming students and parents. Register through the Eagle Gateway on MyUMW in April.
  • Ask your Guidance Counselor to submit a Final Grade Report or a final high school transcript as soon as your final grades are available, but no later than July 1.
  • Have all Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exam scores and/or official transcripts of all college coursework sent directly to the Admissions Office at UMW.
  • If interested, sign up for Authorized Payers who will be emailed students’ bills and will be able to login to EaglePAY to make payments or setup a payment plan.
  • Review opportunities for special Early Arrival Programs, which take place four days before Welcome Week in August. These optional experiences are a fun way for a limited number of new students to explore UMW and surrounding attractions and meet and bond with classmates before classes begin.
