Outside Scholarships

We strongly encourage private scholarship donors to make their awards payable to the University of Mary Washington and mail directly to the University.  If a scholarship recipient personally receives a scholarship check, that check should be forwarded to the University at the address listed below.

All private scholarships are equally divided between the Fall and Spring Semesters unless otherwise stated on the award letter or the scholarship check.


In-Person or Mailed Payments

All CASH payments and check, money order or cashier’s check payments may be made in person at the Cashier’s Office located in Lee Hall Room 206. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 to 5:00.

Please send mailed checks at least 7–10 business days prior to the bill due date to avoid a late payment.   If more than one student from the same household is attending UMW, each invoice payment should be identified. The mailing address is:

University of Mary Washington

Cashier’s Office – Lee Hall 206

1301 College Avenue

Fredericksburg, VA 22401

Please note: All checks are deposited immediately, regardless of the date on the check.

Payment of all University education expenses is the responsibility of the student. If a student fails to pay an amount owed, state law allows the University to assess an administrative fee and late payment penalty. Further, all past-due accounts will be submitted to a private collection agency or the Attorney General’s Office for collection as well as credit bureau reporting. The University will recover all collection fees and attorney’s fees from delinquent debtors. Any student whose full account has not been settled may not receive grades or transcripts, be able to pre-register for classes, or be eligible to return to the University until the account is settled.
