The Office of Student Accounts helps Williams students and families understand their bills and expenses and make payments simply and efficiently. Our responsibilities include accurate and timely student account electronic billing and analysis, prompt refunds on over-payments, and efficient processing of installment payment plans, financial aid disbursements, study away payments, and any other electronic fees, payments, or credits. We also manage student loans for graduated students and are happy to answer questions about those resources.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Office of Student Accounts remains open and available with staff working remotely. No one is on campus to accept payments delivered by courier; so, please send check payments to the P.O. Box only. If your payment will arrive after the payment deadline, contact us at [email protected] with the details of your situation. Check payments are being processed on a weekly basis and are subject to delivery delays. Please check your account details in the Student Account Center on Fridays to monitor receipt of your payments.
