William & Mary Admissions Requirements

As you prepare your application for William & Mary’s Online Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling, know that Admissions Advisors are always on standby, ready to assist you to answer your questions, clarify admissions requirements and review the materials needed. We also encourage you to check out our step-by-step How to Apply guide, which walks you through the process of applying through our online portal.

William & Mary is proud to accept applicants of various academic backgrounds, and all applications are reviewed holistically. With this in mind, our baseline requirement is that all applicants have a completed bachelor’s degree (or equivalent); in conjunction with this, we recommend a GPA of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) as well as GRE Verbal and Quantitative scores (40th percentile or higher preferred in GRE Verbal).

*Please note: Due to COVID-19 concerns, we have temporarily suspended the GRE requirement for all applicants through Fall 2021 as many of the testing centers have been closed. We will look for other evidence of both verbal and quantitative ability during your application review.
