Upon acceptance, all students may apply for financial aid from Williams-Mystic. We strive to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need, and usually award scholarships to more than 80% of students each semester. The typical student pays no more for Williams-Mystic than they would for a semester at their home college or university.
Williams-Mystic also awards several special grants each semester. We thank our alumni, parents, and other contributors to our scholarship fund for their generosity in supporting these grants.
