WILLIAMSBURG — The Board of Visitors of the College of William & Mary will host a public hearing on Monday, April 19, 2021 to discuss the proposed tuition and mandatory fees for continuing and incoming in-state, out-of-state undergraduate students for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Section 23.1-307 (D) of the Code of Virginia requires that 30 days prior to approval of any increases in tuition and mandatory fees, the boards of visitors of Virginia’s higher education institutions must announce the range of increases under consideration, an explanation of the need for such increase, and allow for public comment. William & Mary’s Board of Visitors approved the guidelines for receiving public comment at its February 2020 meeting Richard Bland College (RBC), which is governed by that board.
The virtual hearing will allow for public comment and will take place via Zoom from 9-9:45 am on April 19. Details for the virtual hearing will be available on the college’s website. The hearing will include a presentation by the administration as well as time for comments from the general public. In addition to participating in the public hearing, members of the public can also comment on the proposed fee increase via an online form.
Public comments will be shared with the Board of Visitors in advance of its April meeting, during which the vote will be conducted to set the tuition and mandatory fees for continuing and incoming in-state and out-of-state undergraduate and transfer students admitted to the college for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Board of Visitors will consider mandatory auxiliary fee increases ranging from 0% to 3% to offset direct costs.
The April meeting of the Board of Visitors will be held on April 23 in Hunter Hall, located at 262 Richmond Road. More information on the Board meeting will be released next month in accordance with the university’s normal schedule of announcing public meetings.
