  • Our students are top-notch–those who enrolled in the fall of 2010 had an average GPA of 3.57 and a score of 1720 on the SAT-I.
  • The UMW education prepares them for a wide range of career fields. With intensive writing requirements, as well as speaking requirements, and small class size, students develop into well-rounded individuals who have excellent problem-solving, analytical, and verbal skills to offer.
  • Our location is convenient for employers. We are between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, VA, just a couple of miles off exit 130 on I-95.
