In order to help William and Mary students and preserve the integrity of this program, we have developed the set of policies below. Your cooperation is critical to ensure the maximum number of students can benefit from the program. Failure to comply may result in fines or student conduct referrals to the Dean of Students office.
The Suits for Scholars program is available to current undergraduate students, graduate Arts and Sciences students, and Master of Accounting students.
Borrow and Return Policy
Only one suit may be borrowed per transaction. Clothing must be returned to the Career Center on or before the date specified in your confirmation email. All suits and accessories must be returned in the same condition as received: dry cleaned and free of odors, stains or damages, with dry cleaning receipt attached. Damaged, uncleaned, lost items, or items returned without an attached dry cleaning receipt are subject to fees applied directly to your student account (see FAQs page for details). All suits are distributed on a first come, first served basis.
By typing your initials into the box below and clicking submit, you are agreeing to the following statement:
I agree to follow the policies stated above. I understand failure to do so may result in fines billed to my student account and/or disciplinary action. I agree to treat the clothing I borrow carefully and acknowledge that not doing so will restrict my ability to borrow a suit in the future.
Cancellations, Late Returns, or Damaged Suits
When you cancel a reservation with insufficient time for another student to request that suit or you fail to retrieve your reservation, you adversely affect other William and Mary students' opportunities to take advantage of the Suits for Scholars program. All cancellations must be communicated 1 business day in advance (i.e. by 1:00pm on the Friday prior to the week for which you have reserved the suit). Failure to abide by these policies will result in a policy violation. If you accrue 2 policy violations in a semester, you will no longer have access to the Suits for Scholars program.
Late Returns will result in a daily fee of $25 for the inconvenience this causes other students.
Suits for Scholars attire is property of the College of William and Mary; if a suit or clothing is lost or damaged, the borrower will be charged a replacement fee as well as subject to possible disciplinary action. Suits that are returned stained and/or odorous are also subject to a cleaning fee. Please note the following replacement fees for each item:
Dress Shirt: $50
Tie or other accessory: $30
Late fee: $25 per day, per item
Cleaning fee: $25 per item
