Williams College

Williams College is located on a rural campus in Williamstown, MA, about three hours from Boston and New York. It has around 2,000 undergraduate students, about 9% of whom are from other countries, and accepts approximately 37% of early-decision applicants and 11% of regular-decision applicants.

The SAT or ACT is required at Williams for international students. Competitive scores* range from 1410 to 1550 on the SAT and from 32 to 35 on the ACT. Williams does not require international students to take the TOEFL, but students can send their scores if they wish.

Williams meets students’ full need with financial aid but is need-aware in admissions for international students (those who request financial assistance are less likely to be admitted). The average financial-aid award for international students is approximately US$68,000 per year. Williams does not offer merit-based scholarships to international students.
