To apply for need based financial aid, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition to this we also request the CSS Profile from our entering students only (it is not necessary for returning students to complete the Profile)
Be sure to read form directions carefully and make sure to meet all necessary deadlines. Missed deadlines can affect your eligibility for specific types of financial aid.
In order to download the forms, you will need the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
If you experience difficulties completing a form, please contact our office for assistance.

Submit your Financial Aid Forms through Box - We are pleased to provide another option for secure document submission to our students/families.
Our Missing Information Glossary for 2019 - 2020 and the Missing Information Glossary for 2018 - 2019 are available to help explain any request a student has received from our office.
These are links to our explanation on using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, requesting an IRS Tax Return Transcript and instructions on obtaining an IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND TAXES OR FORMS IF WE HAVE NOT REQUESTED THEM!
These forms would only be requested if you are seeking need-based financial aid from William and Mary's Office of Student Financial Aid (indicated by your filing a FAFSA). You do not need to submit these forms if you only desire merit-based aid from William and Mary.
If you send unsolicited documents, we are required to verify the information regardless of your verification status. In other words, if you were not originally required to go through the verification process, sending unprompted document will require our office to verify the student's FAFSA data.
