Cost of Attendance 2023-02-01T11:38:53-05:00


“Cost of Attendance” is the estimated cost of completing a full year at Williamson College of the Trades. The Cost of Attendance is also referred to as a “Budget” for financial aid purposes. Your Cost of Attendance is not only what you will pay to go to college, it is an estimate of how much you can expect to need to help pay for college and living expenses throughout the nine (9) month academic year (fall and spring semesters).

Williamson’s Net Price Calculator

The Williamson Net Price Calculator is designed to estimate the cost of attendance and types of financial aid you might qualify for if you were a college freshman attending school full-time in the 2020-21 Academic Year. The Net Price Calculator is typically updated at the beginning of each calendar year following the Federal and State Department of Education’s release of the grant award value for the subsequent academic year.

For an estimated cost, tailored specifically for you, see Williamson College’s NET PRICE CALCULATOR

The Cost of Attendance is not the amount that you need to pay Williamson.

The Cost of Attendance is an ESTIMATE of your educational expenses for a given period of enrollment (typically an academic year). Your period of enrollment includes the semesters listed on your award letter.

Williamson’s tuition rate is consistent regardless of in or out-of-state resident status.

Prior to the start of each academic year students will receive their individual Financial Aid Award letter outlining the cost of attendance and awarded financial aid amounts that the student is scheduled to receive during the academic year. Students are also encouraged to use Williamson’s Net Price Calculator which will provide an estimated financial aid award amount based on the student’s individual profile entry.

Williamson’s Cost of Attendance budgets are determined annually, and are estimated using institutional budget information and market comparisons.

As outlined within the Student Enrollment Agreement, Student Handbook, and College Catalog, Williamson’s student refund process is initiated through the completion of the student withdrawal process, which establishes an official withdrawal date.

All applicant costs will be refunded, if such a request is made within three days after signing an Enrollment Agreement and making an initial payment. An applicant requesting cancellation more than three days after signing an Enrollment Agreement and making an initial payment, but prior to entering the school, is entitled to a refund of all monies paid. Applicants who have not visited the school prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three business days following either the regularly scheduled orientation procedures or following a tour of the college facilities and inspection of equipment where training and services are provided.

In all other cases, the refund process is coordinated automatically through the completion of the College withdraw process. Refunds for specific student costs are calculated by percentage by the College Business Office in accordance with the established student withdrawal date as outlined in table below. The College will make all required refunds within sixty business days of the established student withdraw date.

Note 1: The student Enrollment Depositis refunded to an Officially Withdrawn student upon successfully completing the withdrawal process. Failure to return or intentionally damaging College equipment or property will result in a reduction of the student’s deposit amount to address replacement or repair costs. Students that are Unofficially Withdrawn will forfeit their deposit.

Note 2: The student Book & Supply cost is used by the college to purchase individual equipment (e.g. tools, trade shop clothing, etc.), supplies, and books required for a specific academic program. As such, these materials are considered the personal property of each individual student and are not refundable following the first academic day of class.
