Yale operates a need-blind admissions policy for all applicants, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Yale admits undergraduate students without regard to their ability to pay, and provides need-based financial aid awards to all admitted students on the basis of individual needs assessments. All of Yale’s undergraduate financial aid is awarded on the basis of financial need. There are no merit-based or academic scholarships.
Financial aid awards for international students are created using a needs analysis that takes into account the relative differences between the US economy and the economy of students’ home countries.
Additional information and financial aid application instructions for international students are available on the website of the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid.
