William & Mary -Tuition Hike

Tuition to increase 5 percent at College of William & Mary

November 19, 2018 - 1:23 pm

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Officials at the College of William & Mary have approved a 5.4 percent tuition increase for in-state undergraduate students who start next fall.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the Board of Visitors approved the increase Friday. Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors will not see a tuition hike.

The new tuition rate of $18,375 won't change during the freshmen students' four years on campus. The William & Mary Promise created in 2013 guarantees the tuition rate in-state students pay during their four years.

The tuition rate set Friday does not include mandatory fees. Those are set in April, along with room and board. Out-of-state and graduate student tuition is also set in April. They are not included in the tuition guarantee.
