eBill statement Frequently Asked Questions

What is an eBill statement?

eBill statement is a service provided to William & Mary students that allows students and their authorized users to view their bill electronically. Paper bills are not mailed to enrolled students.    An email is sent to all students and authorized users alerting them that a statement is available for viewing in the eServices system. (top)

When will I receive my bill?

William & Mary will generate the initial Fall semester eBill statement  mid-July with a due date at the beginning of August.  The initial Spring semester statement will be generated mid-December with a due date in early January.  Monthly statements are generated throughout the academic year to alert students of any outstanding balance or additional charges such as special class fees or other incidental charges.  Please note:  students enrolled in the Monthly Tuition Payment Plan will only receive the first eBill statement of the Fall and Spring semesters.  They will NOT receive a monthly statement thereafter.  For account activity, please review your 'Student Account Activity' in eServices.  Your Monthly TPP auto-adjusts throughout the semester for any charges or credits to your student account  after the initial semester eBill statement.

What will happen if I do not pay my bill by the due date?

Restrictive holds
Restrictive holds are placed on all accounts with a balance of $100.00 or over if not paid by the initial eBill statement due date. This includes accounts on the W&M monthly payment plan that are past due. The restrictive hold will prevent transcripts from being issued and will prevent registration for any upcoming semesters.  In addition, W&M will withhold  the student's diploma and will not confer their degree. There are other offices that may place a hold on student account records, i.e. Parking Services, Student Health Center, Swem Library,  Accounts Receivable Office for Perkins loans, Registrar's Office, Dean of Student's office, Financial Aid and the various graduate schools. 

Online payments made through eServices are subject to an automatic hold removal process that runs in 20 minute intervals from 12:00 AM to 9:30 PM every day.

Late Fees/Collection Costs
Payment of all W&M education expenses is the responsibility of the student. If a student fails to pay an amount owed, state law requires W&M to assess an administrative fee and/or late payment penalty. Students whose payments are received after the due date will be assessed a late payment fee of up to 10% of the outstanding balance (not to exceed $100) as prescribed in 2.2-4805 of the Code of Virginia.  Failure to receive a bill does not waive the requirement for payment when due and will not prevent the application of the late fee.  Further,  past-due accounts may be submitted to a private collection agency, Virginia debt set-off  or the Attorney General's Office for collection as well as credit bureau reporting. For more information, please see the Receivables and Collections Office site. William & Mary will recover all collection fees and attorney's fees from delinquent debtors. In addition to referral to an outside collection agency, registration for the current or future semester(s) may also be cancelled for non-payment. (top)
