Residency Eligibility for In-State Tuition 

Eligibility for in-state tuition at both the undergraduate and graduate level at William & Mary is determined by §23-7.4 of the Code of Virginia. The Code specifies that you must demonstrate your residency in Virginia for at least one year immediately preceding the first day of classes and an intent to remain in Virginia indefinitely. Applicants are required to submit the Application for Virginia In-State Tuition Privileges to the University Registrar, regardless of how long you have lived in Virginia, for assessment of your eligibility. More information about domicile in the state of Virginia can be found on the University Registrar's website. Students who receive in-state tuition after having previously been designated an out-of-state student will have their scholarship prorated based on new tuition amounts.  

Military Veteran Applicants
William & Mary complies with state and federal regulations for veterans and military students and dependants. Additional information regarding domicile status and support for these individuals may be found on the University Registrar's website
