All About Money

June 9, 2022

Dear 2026 Families,

I’m sharing below a message our first-year dean sent to your students earlier this week. I’ll be sharing a great deal more with you (and about much more than money) in the coming weeks.

And while I’m out of the office till Monday, I’m happy to answer your questions at [email protected]

This week we want to give you an overview of Student Financial Services (SFS) and how they can help you manage paying for Williams. Whether you are receiving financial aid, paying your bill with a college savings account or parent income, and/or planning to borrow a student/parent loan, SFS can help you navigate all things money! Sign up for EphPay, review the website for billing dates and payment policies, and check out this monthly timeline to make sure you are on track for your arrival in August!  

Questions? They are always happy to answer them at [email protected] or you can reach out directly to your SFS advisor.

Don’t Forget…

Williams has an optional payment plan for each semester that allows families to divide their required payment into 4 or 5 installments. Plan details can be found here

Students can allow others to view their account by setting them up as authorized users. This allows those users to speak with SFS staff and make payments on behalf of their students.  Check out the instructions here.

Short Takes

Sign up for Direct Deposit!! 
Whether you plan to get a job on campus, study away, or get your personal expense grant, you will need to sign up for direct deposit so that Williams can give you money!

Report your Outside Scholarship/Tuition Benefit
If you were awarded financial aid from outside Williams, you’ll need to report it to make sure SFS  gets the funds to you ASAP. Follow these instructions

Other Tidbits (both super, duper important!!)
