What are the tuition, room, and board charges for Yale College?

Every Spring the Yale Corporation announces tuition, room, and board charges for the following academic year. The decision is made and publicized sometime in March. Costs of education are announced on each student home page of this site.

I’m waiving the Health Plan but the charges are on my bill. Can I pay the amount due minus the Health Plan charges?

Yes, you may deduct the Health Plan charges from your payment, but be sure to submit the waiver form by the deadline. It may take up to a month from the time you mail the waiver form for the reversal of charges to show on your account. Look for "Waiver Form" on this Yale Health Plan forms page.

I have a credit balance on my account. How do I get a refund?

You may receive a refund when you have a “real” credit on your account, that is when your financial aid is in paid and not memoed status, and when classes have begun. Here is the link to detailed information on requesting a refund. Please note that you are required to request the refund even if you have completed a Direct Deposit Authorization. You can enroll through the Student Information Services web site under the Billing and Students Accounts Menu.

I was charged for failure to clean up and missing furniture. How do I contest these fees?

Failure to clean up and missing furniture fees are charged to your account by the custodial services department. You must contact the supervisor of custodial services for your residential college or hall to contest the fee(s). We recommend you email the supervisor so that your communication is documented. Talk to your College Dean (or housing supervisor, for graduate and professional students), to secure the contact information of the appropriate individual.

Failure to check out and non return of room key penalties are charged to your account by your residential college master’s office. Please see your Master’s administrative staff to contest the fee(s).
