Tuition & Fees

2020-2021 Annual Costs

William & Mary intends to hold in-person classes this fall as long as it is safe to do so. The W&M Board of Visitors unanimously voted May 12, 2020 to roll back a previously adopted tuition increase for incoming in-state undergraduates and keep tuition and mandatory fees flat for all students, including in-state and out-of-state undergraduates, graduate and professional students.

IN-STATE Entering 2020-2021

Tuition for current in-state undergraduates will continue to be capped at the rate established upon their entry.

All other amounts such as fees, room and board, books and incidentals are an average of the current year. Note that books, travel and incidentals are not included on the student bill.

Exact costs will vary based on a student's status, room and board selections, and course of study. View a detailed (per semester) tuition and fees breakdown. View graduate tuition and fees.

In an effort to protect students and ensure their best interest, the U.S. Department of Education published the new Program Integrity and Improvement rules (pdf) to provide students the ability to opt out of course/class fees associated with books or supplies.
