    Tuition Payments Update

    In light of mail complexities caused by ongoing COVID-19 concerns, all checks for tuition payments should be sent directly to:

    Student Finance & Administration
    PO Box 208232
    New Haven, CT 06520-8232

    Sending payments to the YSE Office of Admissions and Financial Aid may result in delays as our office is operating virtually until further notice.

    Please contact financialaid.yse@yale.edu if you have any questions.

    Important Notes

    • Need and merit-based scholarships only cover the cost of tuition. The YSE Office of Admissions and Financial Aid are unable to award additional funding past the cost of tuition, therefore it is important to note that living expenses and fees are not included in coverage.
    • Please note that financial aid is available only up to the Single cost of attendance. The Married and Married with dependents costs of attendance are for informational purposes only.
    • Tuition and the mandatory Student Activity and IT Fees are determined annually by YSE and are subject to change from year to year.
    • Books and supplies are an estimate based on a recent survey of YSE students.
    • Transportation is an estimate based on a recent survey of YSE students and represents the average cost for one round trip between YSE and a student’s permanent residence.
    • Medical insurance is an estimate based on the cost of coverage through Yale Health, the University sponsored medical insurance.
    • Living expenses are an estimate based on a recent survey of YSE students and a benchmark as determined by the College Board. Expenses include housing, food, miscellaneous personal expenses (e.g., clothing), transportation between YSE and a student’s local residence, and transportation necessary to complete a student’s course of study (e.g., attending a conference).
    • You may wish to use the cost of attendance as a means to budget your own finances and determine your need for loans or other supplemental funding.
     
    Expenses Not Included: Moving expenses, prior debt and credit card debt will not be considered part of student budgets in determining eligibility for financial aid.
