William & Mary reserves the right to make changes in its charges for any and all programs at any time, after approval by the Board of Visitors. The tuition and fees for graduate students in Arts and Sciences, with the exception of Public Policy students, who register for nine semester hours of credit or more per semester is $8,220.00 per semester for residents of Virginia and $17,400.00 per semester for non-residents. Any student registered for nine hours or more per semester for any course level (graduate or undergraduate courses) is considered to be a full-time student and will be charged these full-time rates unless qualified to be a Research Graduate Student . Per semester rates for entering Public Policy students are as follows: $13,962.00 for residents of Virginia and $19,247.50 for non-residents.
Tuition for part-time students, at the graduate level, is as follows:
$ 585.00 per semester hour for residents of Virginia
$ 1,383.00 per semester hour for non-residents
Degree-seeking graduate students will be charged the part-time rates for part-time work (eight hours or less per semester) based on their established domiciliary status. Refer to the eligibility for in-state status page for a statement regarding in-state, out-of-state classification for tuition. Full-time non-resident degree-seeking graduate students who hold qualifying assistantships may, on the recommendation of the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research and approval of the Provost’s Office, pay tuition at the resident rates. Rates for students who enroll in Summer Session will be charged on the same basis. Full-time enrollment in the summer is defined as a total of three hours or more in one summer session or in any combination of summer sessions, and half-time enrollment is defined as two hours.
Part-time students who are not enrolled as degree-seeking students at William & Mary (non-degree seeking post-baccalaureate students), must complete the “Application to Determine Physical Residency and In-State Tuition Eligibility (pdf)” to determine eligibility for in-state tuition. Students determined to be domiciled outside of Virginia will pay out-of-state rates. Those determined to be residents will pay according to the in-state rates.
Charges for part-time students to audit courses are the same as courses taken for credit.
