Financial Aid

Yale admits students for their academic and personal promise without regard to their ability to pay. Concern about cost should not keep students from applying. 100% of demonstrated need will be met.

The Financial Aid Package

A financial aid award typically includes a need-based Yale Scholarship
and a student contribution (which consists of a term time job and student income). Students are not expected to take out loans. Yale financial aid covers 100% of demonstrated financial need for all undergraduates.

Good News on the Cost of Yale

Financial aid is based on the total cost of attendance: $65,725 for academic year 2015-2016, which includes tuition, room and board, books and personal expenses. Families whose total gross income is less than $65,000 (with typical assets) are not expected
to make a contribution towards their child’s Yale education.
