The MBA Built For Today's Working Professional

Transform your career at your own pace with our part-time MBA.

Why we don't require GMAT or GRE completion in order to apply.
GMAT or GRE scores are always accepted and will be considered by the admissions committee in the decision-making process if received. However, in William & Mary's Flex MBA program, we believe that standardized test scores are not the only predictors of success - and certainly not for our driven students who have multi-dimensional applications that point to many success indicators.

If this describes you, we would be delighted to speak with you and discuss attending a class visit.

The Flex MBA team welcomes inquiries from prospective students at all stages of the admissions and application process. Please feel free to contact us at any time. We are here to help make your application process a smooth one!

Flex MBA Tuition, Scholarships and Financial Aid

Students of the Flex MBA Program at William & Mary receive an exceptional MBA education with comparatively low tuition and fees. And the return on investment is undeniable. Our Flex MBA alumni reap the financial benefits of a degree from the Raymond A. Mason School of Business over the course of their career, and the payback often begins with a promotion or new higher-level position before they have even completed the Program.

Part-time students in the Flex MBA Program enjoy the lowest MBA tuition of all Mason School MBA programs. Flex MBA students pay per credit hour and are considered to be part-time as long as they take less than nine credit hours per semester. If a Flex MBA student registers for nine or more graduate-level credit hours during the Fall or Spring semesters, the University will automatically charge the full-time tuition rate, which is significantly higher than the part-time credit hour rate. In the summer semester, students may take nine or more credits at the part-time rate. There is a distinct financial advantage for our Flex MBA students.

2019 - 2020 Academic Year
Tuition In-state Out-of-state
Per Credit Hour (less than nine per semester) $875 $1,275
Six Credit Hours (typical semester load) $5,250 $7,650
Student Orientation/Administrative Fee (billed with tuition) $300 $300
Flex MBA Association Dues (one-time fee) $95 $95
Summer Session Administrative Fee (billed with tuition) $80 $80
Graduation Fee $145 $145

Annual increases in tuition and fees are announced each May by the William & Mary Board of Visitors, and take effect in August.

Virginia residents and military personnel at a permanent duty station must apply to receive in-state tuition status. Applications for in-state tuition privileges are due before the first day of classes for the term in which you plan to enroll as an in-state student.

Flex MBA 1693 Scholarship

The Flex MBA 1693 Scholarship pays tribute to the year in which William & Mary was chartered by King William III and Queen Mary II of England. Known as the Alma Mater of the Nation, the University served, from the very beginning, as a catalyst and crucible for the ideas and the people who would, quite literally, change the world. Four 1693 Scholars will be named each year from our incoming applicant pool - two in the Fall semester and two in the Spring semester.

Each Flex MBA 1693 scholar will be granted a scholarship in the amount of $1693 in their first semester of enrollment. To be considered, an additional scholarship application is required through the 1693 Scholarship Portal (see complete details, including criteria and requirements) no later than the Round 1 Application Deadline, which is June 1st for Fall semester enrollment and July 1st for Spring semester enrollment.

Corporate Partnership Scholarship

Employees of a Corporate Partner who become admitted into our Flex MBA or Executive MBA programs will receive a Partnership Scholarship that provides a 10% reduction off of the regular tuition rate*.

*Scholarship is applied to tuition only and is not applicable to other program related fees.

Flex MBA students get financial support from their companies, the military and from student loans. Please contact the following offices for information on each kind of financial aid:

Need more time? Consider our Flex FastStart Non-Degree Option

Flex FastStart is an option for students who are not quite ready to apply for full admission into the Flex MBA Program. We offer a few of our Flex MBA courses on a non-degree seeking basis. Non-degree seeking students can take up to a total of nine credit hours without gaining full admission into the program as long as there is a capacity in the course. All non-degree applications are assessed according to the same academic guidelines as fully-admitted Flex MBA students. Tuition for non-degree seeking students is the same as fully admitted Flex MBA students. Please review tuition details. Non-degree graduate-level courses are not eligible for Federal financial aid, but some private loans are available through traditional lending institutions, like banks. Just make sure the lender does not require degree-seeking status.

Flex FastStart Application Process

We are currently launching a new online application for our Flex FastStart option, which will be available soon. In the meantime, please contact Amy Blackburn at or (757)-221-2912 for more details about the Flex FastStart program.
