Cost and Aid

How much can you expect to pay at Williams? When calculating financial aid packages we start with the total cost of attendance, including tuition, room and board and student fees. We also include the cost of traveling to and from home twice a year, plus required textbooks, art and lab supplies, and personal expenses like haircuts or a data plan for your phone.

We’ll work with your family to determine what you can afford to contribute, and subtract that number from the cost of attendance to determine your family’s financial need.

Here’s the simple formula: Cost of Attendance – Family Contribution = Financial Need

2020-2021 Comprehensive Fees

Tuition $50,450
Room $6,481
Board $6,269
Activities & Residential House Fees $0
Study Away Fee (as applicable) $1,500

Total without Study Away: $63,200
Total with Study Away: $64,700

The Net Price Calculator provides a more precise estimate of your cost to attend Williams. It requires more detailed financial information, so you'll want to have recent tax forms and pay stubs on hand before starting. The process typically takes about 20 minutes.

When Using the Calculators

For best results, please use the most accurate information available.

If your parents are divorced or separated, complete the calculator twice, once with each parent’s financial information, to estimate their expected contribution.

If either parent is self-employed, their tax-allowable losses and depreciations may not be considered in our financial aid calculations.

If your situation is unusual, please contact the Financial Aid office to discuss unique circumstances. We can help you understand your options.
