Activate & Deposit

Step 1: Activate Your W&M Account

To activate your WMuserid you will need:

  • your W&M Student ID number (the nine-digit number beginning with 93 at the bottom of your admission letter)
  • the email address you provided in your Common Application

Once activated, you will use your WMuserid and password to check your financial aid award package, pay your enrollment deposit online, and access many other services available through myWM — everything from register for classes to make online payments.

Step 2: View Your Preliminary Transfer Evaluation

We know that understanding how your coursework from your previous institution(s) will transfer to William & Mary is important to you. After activating your W&M Account, your preliminary evaluation will be available online. Log into your account at myWM, select the "Admissions" tab, and then "Preliminary Transfer Credit." Here you will be able to view an unofficial preliminary evaluation of your transfer credit. Please note, courses that are not eligible for credit will not appear here. Some of your coursework may require submission of a syllabus for further review — this will be communicated to you upon your deposit by the Transfer Services Coordinator. If you have any questions about your evaluation or materials that may be needed for further review, please contact the [[transfercredit, Transfer Services Coordinator]].

Step 3: Pay Your Enrollment Deposit 

Your deposit is a one-time, non-refundable payment of $150 that will be applied toward your first-semester bill. You can submit your enrollment deposit online via credit card or electronic check. This deposit is due two weeks after the receipt of your mailed admission letter.

By submitting an enrollment deposit to W&M you affirm that you have not submitted an enrollment deposit or affirmative response to another college or university. Offers of admission are contingent upon continuing to meet high standards of academic performance, personal conduct and completion of all work in progress.

Step 4: Activate Your W&M Email Account

You can activate your WMApps email once:

  • W&M confirms receipt of your enrollment deposit to the email address you used in your Common Application

Other college offices will use your WMApps email to communicate with you throughout the summer and your time at W&M. It's recommended that you check your WMApps email routinely throughout the summer leading up to Orientation.
