Enrollment Fees

All students of Williamson College of the Trades attend on full scholarships covering tuition, room, board, and textbooks. However, students are expected to provide their own health insurance and to purchase certain items for personal use, such as tools, equipment, and some books needed at college and later in their careers. Students are required to provide an enrollment deposit (an entrance fee that will be returned to the student upon graduation, less any financial obligations, or, in the case of dismissal/withdrawal, if the student properly completes the college’s withdrawal procedure). Students must also pay certain fees for yearbook, breakage, and placement. Students should anticipate the following estimated initial and annual charges:

Entrance Fees: (Freshmen only) Annual Fees: (All Students)
Bedspread – $35.00
Calculator – $20.00
Enrollment Deposit – $200.00
Total = $255.00
Medical Fee – $75.00
Mattress Fee – $50.00
Yearbook – $80.00
Breakage – $20.00
Total = $225.00

Shop Fees: (All Students)

In addition, students must pay an annual Shop Fee for the purchase of essential personal tools, drafting and safety equipment, trade manuals, and other related materials. Although Shop Fees vary from one program to another, for the 2017-18 school year, shop fees, regardless of program, may not exceed $950 per year or $1,900 for all three years (these amounts are subject to an annual increase of no more than $100). Also, juniors and seniors who park on campus are assessed a $75/year parking fee. (NOTE: Williamson College of the Trades has not applied for status as a Veterans Administration Approved School. Consequently, students attending Williamson are not eligible for Veterans/GI Bill benefits.)

Any current student or incoming freshman may pay his fees online here.

Refund Policy

All fees paid by a Candidate will be fully refunded if requested within three days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment. A Candidate who requests cancellation more than three days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment, but prior to entering the college, will receive a refund of all fees.

A Candidate who has not visited the school prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three business days following either the first day of the college’s regularly scheduled orientation procedures or following a tour of the college facilities and inspection of equipment where training and services are provided. A Candidate who officially withdraws from the School after three business days following his first day of attending classes will not qualify for refunds of any fees.

Williamson makes all required refunds within sixty days of student withdrawal or termination.

Insurance and Health Requirements

Prior to Freshman Registration, students are required, at their own expense, to show proof of immunizations and to undergo a physical examination and a drug screening. Participants in the college’s athletic program(s) must have a physical examination each year. Throughout their enrollment at Williamson, all students are required to maintain personal medical insurance.
