Windows on Williams

Windows on Williams (WOW) gives high school seniors the opportunity to spend three all-expenses-paid days at 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.

WOW participants stay in dorms with current students, attend classes, meet with professors, and learn about our admission process and our extraordinary financial aid program.

The fall 2022 WOW dates are Thursday, September 22 - Saturday, September 24 and Thursday, October 20 - Saturday, October 22. There are two application deadlines. Regardless of when you apply, you’ll have the opportunity to select which WOW program you want to attend. Please note that currently participation in WOW requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19, including a booster if eligible, and masks must be worn inside all campus buildings. We will notify WOW attendees should campus COVID-19 policies change.

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 31)
  • Deadline 2: August 1 (decision by August 31)
