For transfer students seeking financial assistance, Williams offers one of the most generous financial aid programs in the U.S. We consider the applications of all prospective transfer students without regard to their ability to pay, and we meet 100 percent of each admitted student’s demonstrated financial need for their entire Williams career.
Transfer students interested in applying for financial aid should follow the college's standard application process. There are no additional materials required.
The vast majority of Williams students, regardless of age, are considered financial dependents. Exceptions include U.S. military veterans or those who can demonstrate longstanding financial independence from their families. If you have questions about your financial status, please contact Associate Director of Financial Aid Ann Lundhild.
While our financial aid process requires that you submit information about your earnings history, any aid award from Williams will reflect the fact that you'll be enrolled as a full-time student and thus likely to earn less than you did previously.
