Incoming Student Newsletter 
Dear W&M Families,
Campus may seem calmer this time of the year, but we are hard at work preparing for students to return in August.  The Global Education Office is planning trips abroad,
the Cohen Career Center is expanding their staff to fit your students' needs, and Residence Life is getting the halls ready for their arrival.  Want to stay up to date all year?  Be on the lookout for the new Parent & Family Programs Calendar.

Don't forget to have your student all information from the TribeGuide.  Upcoming deadlines can be found in this newsletter.

As for Parent & Family Programs, we are excitedly planning Family Orientation.  This year it will be held Friday, August, 21st and Saturday, August 22nd. Can you believe it is less than two months away? Don't forget to register so we can provide you a name badge and schedule during Check-In.

We look forward to having you join us this fall.

Now open to sophomores as well as incoming freshmen, Aim 4 students participate in academic coursework focused on community engagement, direct service with local community organizations, conferences and exchanges with regional universities, and facilitated reflections, while receiving personalized advising and unique opportunities and resources to support their development as active citizens. 
Planning for a Semester Abroad
W&M currently offers 20 different exchanges and sponsored semester programs around the world, from Nottingham, England to Adelaide, Australia. If your student is considering studying abroad for a semester or an academic year, summer is a great time to start planning. Have questions? Throughout the summer, the Global Education Office will hold walk-in hours from 11am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
Enroll or Waive your coverage Today!
The College requires all full-time undergraduate and graduate students and all F-1/J-1 international students to have health insurance coverage throughout the school year as a condition of enrollment.  Each academic year, students must either elect to enroll or waive the W&M-sponsored Student Insurance Plan to comply with this requirement.

Please visit Student Insurance for more information. 

Cohen Career Center staff is growing!
The Cohen Career Center has been busy filling current and newly-created positions, and will welcome students in the fall with an expanded staff. Virginia Damron started in January in the new position of Assistant Director, Accounting and Finance Careers. Sean Schofield began his position of Assistant Director, Internship Coordinator in May. Chiquita Geldorp will be filling the newly created position of Assistant Director, Marketing Careers in June. Another new position for the career center is Director of Business Careers and Employer Relations, which will be filled by Mike Caldwell in July.   
Residence Life Updates
  • Participation in Hall Council is an unmatchable leadership experience offered to all students in housing. Hall Governance and Self Determination define the W&M residential experience. Does your student have what it takes to make a difference?
  • Congratulations to our National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) of the Year Winners and NRHH Honor Cord Recipients!
  • Fall 2015 Opening is almost here! It is never too early to start planning ahead.
eServices and Student Accounts

Begin the new academic year by being informed and prepared! Check with your student to be sure you are set up as an Authorized User in eServices. This will allow you to receive eStatement notifications, have access to view and pay the W&M student account and enroll in the monthly Tuition Payment Plan. 


Restrictive holds will be placed on all W&M Student Accounts that are not paid or covered by financial aid, scholarships or the Tuition Payment Plan on August 4th. This will prevent your student from registering for classes or making any registration changes. Payments can be made in several ways.
