Enrollment Deposit

So you've decided to become one of us

Once you've made your decision to begin your graduate studies with us, you will need to complete the Intent to Enroll form online, or complete the paper version that was sent with your admission letter.  You will also need to make your non-refundable enrollment deposit to hold your space in your program.  (Students elevated to the EdS program do not need to pay a deposit.)

William & Mary offers two ways to submit your enrollment deposit: online (credit card or electronic check) and by mail (check or money order). Your enrollment deposit is a non-refundable, one-time payment which will be applied toward your first semester bill. Once we receive your deposit, you officially become a graduate student at The College of William and Mary.  We will create a W&M email account for you and provide you with a course registration window. 

Confirming your Enrollment and Paying your Deposit Online

Before making an online deposit, you will need to activate your WMuserid, if you haven't done so already. You will need your W&M Student ID number which is the nine-digit number beginning with 93 printed at the bottom of your admission letter.

  1. Complete the Intent form online to confirm your enrollment either before or after submitting your electronic deposit payment.
  2. Complete your payment online. There is an additional 2.75% fee charged to those paying by credit card. Note that American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover are accepted. Please note the system works best with Internet Explorer. You will click through three screens before arriving at the eServices portal, where you should select eDeposits from the top horizontal menu. Pay Online by Credit Card or Electronic Check Now
  3. Upon completion of your online transaction you will receive a confirmation email at the email address listed in your payment transaction from TouchNet, our online payment service.
  4. Once we have processed your deposit (typcially takes 24 hours), you will receive  a WELCOME email from W&M at the application email address, to confirm the receipt of your deposit which will include instructions on how to activate your WMApps email account. Your WMApps email will be the primary way through which campus offices communicate with you after your deposit.  It is the primary way W&M communicates with you throughout your graduate program. Please check it frequently.
