In-State Tuition:

To determine the qualification requirements for In-State tuition, please refer to William & Mary's In-State Residency guide. All applications for these privileges should be submitted to the Registrar directly. Please note you must file a new In-State Tuition request even if you have already been recognized as an In-State student during your undergraduate studies, even if these were completed at W&M.

Financial Aid:

Merit scholarship for the MAcc Program at the College of William & Mary is based on an applicant's academic and personal achievements, not on financial need. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid administers a variety of student loan programs. We also suggest applicants look at for an exhaustive collection of information about student financial aid.

Graduate Assistantships (GAs) offer students an excellent opportunity to work closely with a faculty member on valuable research or on projects with administrative units in the Mason School of Business. Students receiving a graduate assistantship are expected to either work ten hours a week and receive $4,000 for the academic year or work five hours a week and receive $2,000 for the academic year. GA applications will be made available to admitted students during the spring prior to their arrival on campus.
