Your Costs & Aid

If you applied for financial aid, you should receive notice of your eligibility within two weeks after receiving your admission letter. If the Office of Financial Aid has requested additional information, such as an IRS Tax Return Transcript or W-2 forms, your offer may arrive later. As long as you respond to such requests in a timely manner, you will receive full consideration for financial aid.

In order to view your financial aid award online, you must activate your W&M account and access your G Suite email. You will be emailed when your award letter is ready for online viewing.
