To apply for financial aid for the St. Andrews Joint Degree Programme, make sure you file the FAFSA and CSS Profile. Instructions are available on our How to Apply for Aid website. To apply for St. Andrews Joint Degree Programme Admission, please refer to the St. Andrews Admission website.
Financial aid is available to St. Andrews Joint Degree Programme students who apply for admission through and begin their first year of study at William & Mary. Students who apply for admission directly through St. Andrews are not eligible for federal, state, or institutional financial aid when studying at William & Mary. Private loans remain an option for such students.
In most cases, we can meet the full financial need for Virginia residents through a combination of grants and loans. Qualifying out-of-state students may receive up to 25% of their full cost of attendance in grant aid in addition to other federal aid. Students interested in the St. Andrews Programme will initially be awarded financial aid as if they were a standard William & Mary student. This is the aid package the student will receive during periods of enrollment at William & Mary.
A second aid package will be determined soon after being admitted into the William & Mary St. Andrews Programme. This second notification outlines the aid available while enrolled at St. Andrews. The purpose of these two notifications is to help you decide which program (St. Andrews Joint Degree or Regular W&M) is best for your financial situation. When you make your enrollment deposit, you will indicate which program you wish to enter. An award notification for the regular W&M program will be sent via e-mail once you are admitted. The award notice for the St. Andrews Joint Degree Programme will be sent via regular US mail.
Please contact your financial aid counselor if you have any questions about St. Andrews financial aid.
Update for 2018 - 2019 School Year
