Admissions & Aid

William Peace University is a forward-thinking alternative to conventional colleges and universities where lectures and papers are the rule.

Here, good students are empowered to become great students by taking a more active, participatory role in their education. The results speak for themselves. More than 96% of recent Peace alumni land a career position or a spot in top graduate schools within a year of graduation.
