Tuition & Fees

2022-2023 Annual Costs

Affording Opportunity

William & Mary is committed to affording all admitted students the opportunity to thrive in and out of the classroom. This commitment to financial assistance can help make attending our preeminent university possible.

For the fifth year in a row, the W&M Board of Visitors Executive Committee voted to approve no tuition increases for the 2022-23 academic year. Our tuition and fees often cost less than similarly ranked private universities.

Generous Financial Assistance

Through a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, work-study and other sources, generous financial assistance is available, with 65% of in-state students receiving aid and almost half of out-of-state students receiving aid. Effective fall 2023, all in-state, Pell-eligible students automatically receive scholarship assistance to cover at least tuition and fees.

Estimated Costs

Estimated annual costs are provided below to assist undergraduate students with financial planning. Exact costs will vary based on a student's status, housing and food selections and course of study. Note that books, travel and incidentals are not included on the student bill.

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