All payments from international students attending the W&M Pre-College Summer Program must be made via wire transfer.
The College of William and Mary has partnered with Flywire (formerly peerTransfer) to make your international payments safe and easy. Flywire allows you to pay securely from almost any country and any bank, generally in your home currency for any amount over $ 50.00 USD. They also offer excellent foreign exchange rates that will save money when compared to traditional banks. By making your payment with flywire you can:
- Track your payments from start to finish
- Save on bank fees and exchange rates
- Contact their multilingual customer support team with any questions, day or night
The first step in making a payment is notifying NIAHD that you intend to accept our offer and attend the program. Refer to your offer email to find a link to the notification form.
Once NIAHD receives notice of your intent to join the program, we will email you detailed information about logging into Flywire and making your payment. It can take several days for this information to be sent to you. Use this time to get your bank and account information from your parents and make sure that the funds are available.
You will not be able to make any payments or start your immigration paperwork until you have properly notified NIAHD of your intent to join the program.

Overpayments of personal funds
The College is not in a position to act as a bank; therefore, any large personal payments in excess of the amount of the program charges will not be refunded to the student unless the student withdraws or graduates from the College. International wires in excess of the academic year charges will be returned to the originating bank. Students need to make arrangements to have personal funds which are to be used for off campus rent, food and other living expenses directed to a personal bank account.
