Windows on Williams

Windows on Williams (WOW) gives high school seniors the opportunity to experience Williams. WOW is a selective program open to high school students in the U.S. and Puerto Rico; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams.

In an effort to prioritize people’s health and safety, the college has made the difficult decision to close the campus to all visitors. We look forward to welcoming you to Williams through our virtual WOW program.

WOW participants get to know current students, attend online classes, meet with professors, and learn about our admission process and our extraordinary financial aid program.

The fall 2020 WOW dates are Thursday, September 24 - Saturday, September 26 and Thursday, October 15 - Saturday, October 17.

There are two application deadlines. Regardless of when you apply, you’ll have the opportunity to select which WOW program you want to attend.

You can access the WOW application here. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, but please apply by one of the following deadlines.

  • Deadline 1: July 1 (decision by July 17)
  • Deadline 2: August 15 (decision by September 1)
