BOV Extends W&M Promise

By University Communications Staff

In November, the Board of Visitors approved an extension of the William & Mary Promise, ensuring a guaranteed tuition plan will remain in place for in-state students. The Board voted to establish a four-year guaranteed in-state rate of $15,674 for the fall 2016 entering class. That rate will remain constant through all four years of undergraduate study. Already enrolled in-state undergraduates who are continuing their education at W&M (sophomores, juniors and seniors in 2016-17) will see zero increase in tuition rates. In 2013, the Board of Visitors adopted the W&M Promise, a comprehensive and campus-wide approach to sustaining the university’s long-term financial health.
