Finances and Financial Aid

No tuition is paid to Williams College when you study away on an approved program, however, there is a $1,500 Study Away fee for all students. Student Financial Services will help to cover this fee for eligible students.

You are encouraged to apply to any scholarships available in order to help offset the costs of the study away program. You should inquire about these opportunities from your program directly.

If you are attending the Williams-Exeter Programme at Oxford (WEPO) or the Williams-Mystic Program, you will pay Williams tuition with no Study Away fee applied.

Financial Aid

Students receiving Financial Aid from Williams are encouraged to Study Away. Financial aid eligibility can be applied to any program, provided the program and plan receives approval from the Global Education and Study Away Office and the Committee on Academic Standing (CAS).

The study away financial aid process is outlined on the Student Financial Services website.

A separate Study Away Budget Proposal must be submitted once you have been accepted to your program and the estimated costs are firm.

In order to forward your aid to your study away program, you must also submit a copy of your bill. This can be submitted through the Study Away Bill Submission Form.

If you need a letter to show proof of financial support when you apply for your visa, please request one through the Office of Financial Aid using the Visa Letter Request Form.

Please contact your Student Financial Services advisor in The Office of Student Financial Services with any questions specific to financial aid and study away.
