The monthly tuition payment plan is intended to help students pay the cost of their higher education during the Fall and Spring terms of the academic year. The plan distributes the cost of tuition, fees, housing, meal plans and incidental charges on the student's account into four equal payments. Monthly installments will be due on the 1st day of the payment month and may be set up to auto-debit your bank account or credit card (service fee of 2.85% applies to all credit card payments). The enrollment fee of $50.00 per semester will be charged to your student account at enrollment and is included in the plan total.
Payment Plan Highlights
The payment plan offered by the College of William and Mary allows for a convenient automatic payment of your tuition and other student account charges in four monthly installments each semester. The plan is offered through Touchnet via W&M eServices and will be available for enrollment after the first semester eStatement is generated. Here are the plan highlights:
- The plan is only available for Fall and Spring semesters
- The plan is NOT available for Summer terms due to the short length of the summer semesters
