Students must pay four full years of tuition. Students who spend five years in medical school at Yale either take a fifth year to do extended study or may request to take a leave of absence. Both require the approval of the associate dean for student affairs.

Tuition payment options for fifth-year students (Extended Study) (1) pay full tuition for four consecutive years and a registration fee for the chronological fifth year; (2) pay split tuition and the registration fee over a two-year period. Students will pay one-half of the current rate of tuition and one-half of the registration fee each year. The total amount will be charged in two installments, for each term; (3) students enrolled in a joint-degree program at another Yale professional school will pay the required tuition of the other degree program to that school and no tuition or registration fee to the School of Medicine. Students will pay the required amount of tuition to the School of Medicine in the next academic year. Students will apply for financial aid at the other school; (4) students enrolled in a dual-degree program at an away institution will pay the required tuition of the other degree program to the away school and pay the registration fee to the School of Medicine. Students will pay full tuition to the School of Medicine in the next academic year. Students will apply for financial aid at the away institution.

Tuition payment options for students who take a leave of absence Students who take a leave of absence pay a registration fee for the year(s) on leave. They pay full tuition for the four years they are in residence. If a student decides to begin his or her leave of absence in the middle of any year, he or she pays full tuition for that year and a registration fee for the following year.

The following tuition arrangements for joint-degree programs apply only if the student is enrolled at Yale University for both degrees. It is strongly suggested that students interested in any joint program make an appointment to speak with the registrar at each school to discuss the tuition payment schedule.

Students who spend five years in the School of Medicine in order to receive an M.D./M.P.H. joint degree pay four years of full tuition to the School of Medicine. In addition, they pay half of the School of Medicine tuition to the School of Public Health during the year in which they are enrolled in YSPH.

M.D./Ph.D. students pay three and one-half years’ tuition to the School of Medicine and two and one-half years’ tuition to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. If a student is in the program after six years, he or she pays a minimal registration fee to the school he or she is attending. (The student is responsible for his or her own health insurance.)

Students who apply to one of the joint M.D./J.D., M.D./M.B.A., or M.D./M.Div. programs at Yale are expected to do so at the same time that they apply to the School of Medicine or by the end of their second year at the School of Medicine in order to qualify for the special tuition arrangements. Students in the M.D./J.D. Program pay three and one-half years’ tuition to the School of Medicine and two and one-half years’ tuition to the Law School. Students enrolled in the M.D./M.Div. Program pay three and one-half years’ tuition to the School of Medicine and two and one-half years’ tuition to the Divinity School. Students in the M.D./M.B.A. Program pay three and one-half years’ tuition to the School of Medicine and one and one-half years’ tuition to the School of Management.

If a student is asked to repeat one or more years of course work because of academic failure in curriculum requirements, he or she pays full tuition for each additional year of study.

Enrollment in courses in other schools at the University may subject the student to additional fees.

First-year students should anticipate a cost of $71,640, including tuition, for necessary expenses in an academic year. Married students and/or students with dependents have a federally established standard maintenance allowance deducted from their income.

First-year students may wish to purchase some of their equipment, such as an ophthalmoscope. Each medical student must have special equipment for individual courses.

All students are required to pay a $420 Activity Fee. If a student is enrolled beyond the fourth year, a $210 Activity Fee is charged. All students are required to pay an annual $160 Technology Fee.

Upperclassmen are reminded that they should anticipate the expenses of travel for interviews related to internship applications and also the cost of binding their theses.

Student Accounts and Bills

Student accounts, billing, and related services are administered through the Office of Student Financial Services, which is located at 246 Church Street. The telephone number is 203.432.2700, or visit www.yale.edu/sfs/contactus.

Bills

Yale University’s official means of communicating monthly financial account statements is through the University’s Internet-based system for electronic billing and payment, Yale University eBill-ePay. Yale does not mail paper bills.

Student account statements are prepared and made available twelve times a year at the beginning of each month. Payment is due in full by 4 p.m. Eastern Time on the first business day of the following month. E-mail notifications that the account statement is available on the University eBill-ePay Web site (www.yale.edu/sis/ebep) are sent to all students at their official Yale e-mail addresses and to all student-designated authorized payers. It is imperative that all students monitor their Yale e-mail accounts on an ongoing basis.

Bills for tuition, room, and board are available to the student during the first week of July, due and payable by August 1 for the fall term; and during the first week of November, due and payable by December 1 for the spring term. The Office of Student Financial Services will impose late fees of $125 per month (up to a total of $375 per term) if any part of the term bill, less Yale-administered loans and scholarships that have been applied for on a timely basis, is not paid when due. Nonpayment of bills and failure to complete and submit financial aid application packages on a timely basis may result in the student’s involuntary withdrawal from the University.

No degrees will be conferred and no transcripts will be furnished until all bills due the University are paid in full. In addition, transcripts will not be furnished to any student or former student who is in default on the payment of a student loan.

The University may withhold registration and certain University privileges from students who have not paid their term bills or made satisfactory payment arrangements by the day of registration. To avoid delay at registration, students must ensure that payments reach Student Financial Services by the due dates.

Charge for Rejected Payments

A processing charge of $25 will be assessed for payments rejected for any reason by the bank on which they were drawn. In addition, the following penalties may apply if a payment is rejected:

  • 1. If the payment was for a term bill, a $125 late fee will be charged for the period the bill was unpaid.
  • 2. If the payment was for a term bill to permit registration, the student’s registration may be revoked.
  • 3. If the payment was given to settle an unpaid balance in order to receive a diploma, the University may refer the account to an attorney for collection.

Yale University eBill-ePay

There are a variety of options offered for making payments. Yale University eBill-ePay is the preferred means for payment of bills. It can be found at www.yale.edu/sis/ebep. Electronic payments are easy and convenient—no checks to write, no stamps, no envelopes, no hassle. Payments are immediately posted to the student’s account. There is no charge to use this service. Bank information is password-protected and secure, and there is a printable confirmation receipt. Payments can be made twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, up to 4 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date to avoid late fees. (The eBill-ePay system will not be available when the system is undergoing upgrade, maintenance, or repair.) Students can authorize up to three authorized payers to make payments electronically from their own computers to the student’s account using Yale’s system.

Use of the student’s own bank payment service is not authorized by the University because it has no direct link to the student’s Yale account. Payments made through such services arrive without proper account identification and always require manual processing that results in delayed crediting of the student’s account, late fees, and anxiety. Students should use Yale eBill-ePay to pay online. For those who choose to pay by check, remittance advice with mailing instructions is available on the Web site.

Yale Payment Plan

The Yale Payment Plan (YPP) is a payment service that allows students and their families to pay tuition, room, and board in ten equal monthly installments throughout the year based on individual family budget requirements. It is administered by the University’s Office of Student Financial Services. The cost to enroll in the YPP is $100 per contract. The deadline for enrollment is June 20. For additional information, please contact Student Financial Services at 203.432.2700 and select “Press 1” from the Main Menu. The enrollment link can be found online in the Yale Payment Plan section of the Student Accounts Web site: www.yale.edu/sfas/financial/accounts.html#payment.

Financial Aid

Yale University recognizes the increasing cost of acquiring a medical education and wants students to pursue their medical studies at Yale as free of financial concerns as possible. Therefore, since the amount of funds available to the School is limited, and in order to meet the financial needs of students in a fair and equitable manner, the method for determining the financial aid for individual students is as follows.

In the spring of each year the budgets for students are established. These budgets include all projected expenses, including tuition, books and supplies, health insurance, personal and transportation, technology fee, student activity fee, and living expenses. They do not include the cost of purchasing, maintaining, or insuring an automobile.

The Federal Selective Service law was amended in 1982 to provide that no student receive Title IV funds (Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan) unless he or she has executed a Statement of Registration Compliance (SRC) that either confirms that the individual has registered for Selective Service or states the reason why he or she is not required to do so. Because most of the school’s financial aid awards include funds from at least one Title IV program, failure to execute a Statement of Registration Compliance will render students ineligible for that portion of the financial aid award that would normally be provided through these programs. Students for whom this law presents special problems, and who are subject to Selective Service, should consult the financial aid officer.

All student financial assistance is need based. The amount of the budget considered the student’s responsibility is determined using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Need Access Application, and includes money from the student’s own resources (assets, salaries, etc.), from the spouse and/or fiancé’s income, when applicable, and from a parent contribution. The difference between the amount for which the family is responsible and the basic budget constitutes the financial support for which each student is eligible.

The availability of financial aid is dependent on a student’s status.

(a) Full-Time. An individual who has matriculated at this school and is pursuing a full course of studies as outlined in this catalogue is a full-time student. This includes the required basic science courses in the first and second years and the required clinical clerkship in the third year. In addition, during the fourth year the student works on and completes a required thesis, and completes an adviser-approved schedule of electives. This student is charged full tuition, and financial aid is available if the student completes all the necessary forms and a need for aid has been determined.

(b) Leave of Absence. No financial aid is available to students not attending classes or working toward the requirements of the M.D. degree at Yale or elsewhere. This student is charged a registration fee. If a student is studying at another Yale graduate or professional school, that student is charged tuition by the school he or she is attending.

(c) Extended Study. A student who is not taking a full course load but is attending at least one class at Yale, or elsewhere, and/or is doing research toward the thesis requirement is charged a registration fee and is eligible for financial aid only in the form of a Federal Direct Student Loan. Students on leave of absence or extended study programs may have this option for only one year unless there are exceptional circumstances. Students must be back in school full time at the end of one year.

(d) Satisfactory Academic Progress. In order to be considered eligible for any type of financial assistance, a student must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress. At appropriate evaluation intervals, the student must be approved for continued enrollment by the Progress Committee of the School of Medicine. It is this committee’s responsibility to require a student to finish incomplete work and/or complete any required remedial study prior to advancement to the next academic year. If the student fails to finish incomplete work and/or remedial study within one year, the student is not considered in good standing and is ineligible for any type of financial aid. Students are expected to complete the requirements of the M.D. degree within four years. With the approval of the Progress Committee of the School of Medicine or the Office of Student Affairs, a student may remain up to six years.

When a student is no longer in residence and has failed to complete required course work needed to receive the M.D. degree, the student’s enrollment status is in absentia to submit. Failure to complete requirements includes not completing the dissertation, not passing the USMLE Step I or Step II, or not satisfactorily completing a required clerkship. The student is not charged a tuition fee and is not eligible for any financial assistance, University services, and/or loan deferments. Once the student has completed all of the requirements for graduation, his or her name is presented to the Board of Permanent Officers and to the Yale Corporation for the awarding of the M.D. degree.

Consistent with student status, satisfactory academic progress, and available funds, the need for financial aid is met by: (1) loans, made up of monies from various loan sources, and (2) scholarship, when eligibility for financial aid is determined using a parent contribution. This includes scholarship money supplied directly to the student from non-Yale sources. The maximum scholarship awarded to a married student never exceeds the amount calculated for a single student with no resources. The total scholarship support for all students is, of course, limited by the availability of funds. Should scholarship need exceed the supply of funds, additional loans are made available.

It is the policy of the School of Medicine to abide by the FAFSA and Need Access calculation of the student’s and parents’ contribution.

Additional financial support in the form of loans, scholarships, or employment must be made known to the student financial aid officer and may result in a proportionate reduction of School support. If a student does not report changes, his or her financial aid file is subject to review by a Disciplinary Committee and all financial aid may be canceled and the incident reported.

Signed copies of parents’ and student’s (and spouse/fiancé’s, if applicable) tax returns, including all schedules and W-2 forms or a statement of earnings for the previous fiscal year are required for all students applying for Yale Loans and Scholarships. Copies of Social Security benefits, unemployment compensation, and retirement benefits of both student and parents are also required. All information is verified in accordance with federal regulations. If the parents are divorced, the student must provide information on the custodial parent. The custodial parent will remain the same for all subsequent years; a student cannot change custodial parents unless the original custodial parent dies. If the custodial parent is remarried, the stepparent’s information is also required.

All information in individual student financial aid applications is strictly confidential and is used only for the purpose of determining and administering the student’s aid.

It is understood that allocations of financial aid are held as binding commitments only insofar as the original data on which these allocations were based are correct.

For 2013–2014 all students who have a calculated loan need and who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States may borrow through the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program. They may also receive a Yale Medical School Loan. The combination of these loans will cover a part of their educational expenses. These loans are normally repaid over a ten-year period beginning six months after borrowers complete their education.

Additional information concerning educational loans available to students of the School of Medicine may be obtained from the Student Financial Aid Office, Room 202, Edward S. Harkness Memorial Hall, 367 Cedar Street, or from our Web site at www. medfinaid.yale.edu.

A student who withdraws after the 60 percent point has earned 100 percent of the Title IV funds. In 2013–2014, the last days for refunding federal student aid funds will be October 31, 2013 (Years 1 and 2) and October 16, 2013 (Years 3 and 4) in the fall term, and April 4, 2014 (Year 1), May 16, 2014 (Year 2), May 12, 2014 (Year 3), and March 23, 2014 (Year 4) in the spring term.

  • 4. If the student has received student loans or other forms of financial aid, funds will be returned in the order prescribed by federal regulations; namely, first to Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, if any; then to Federal Perkins Loans; Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans; next to any other federal, state, private, or institutional scholarships and loans; and, finally, any remaining balance to the student.
  • 5. Recipients of federal and/or institutional loans who withdraw are required to have an exit interview before leaving Yale. Students leaving Yale receive instructions on completing this process from Yale Student Financial Services.

This schedule applies only to the School of Medicine. Contact the School of Public Health and the Physician Associate Program for their schedules and policies.
