Current Students

Financial aid eligibility is determined annually, and continuing students are required to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year for consideration for financial aid assistance. Annual submission of the FAFSA helps identify changes from the previous year that may impact your eligibility for financial assistance. Continuing students do not need to submit the CSS Profile. Virginia students who are nonimmigrants, undocumented, have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or are otherwise ineligible to file the FAFSA can still pursue financial assistance from the state of Virginia through the Virginia Alternative State Aid (VASA) application.

Application Deadlines

Our priority deadlines ensure the timely determination of your financial aid eligibility. You will still be able to submit an application after the deadline, but this may delay the determination of your financial aid eligibility.

Given the delays in receiving FAFSA data for the 2024-25 year, William & Mary will be working to ensure that anyone experiencing challenges with filing the FAFSA will still be given full consideration of financial aid eligibility, even if the FAFSA is received after the published deadlines
