If you participate in the Virginia529 program and do not see a credit amount showing on your statement, please contact the Virginia College Savings Plan directly at the number listed below. Any balance not covered by the Virginia529 funds must be paid to the College by the due date on the bill.

Participants in the inVEST program need to submit a Distribution request form to the Virginia College Savings Plan each semester in order to have the funds disbursed to William & Mary. The College does not bill the Virginia College Savings Plan for inVEST program funds. Any balance not covered by the inVEST program funds must be paid to the College by the due date on the bill.
