Yale awards all undergraduate financial aid on the basis of financial need, with the goal of making a Yale education affordable for talented students from all walks of life and from all over the world.

At the Yale Financial Aid office, we are ready to help you and your family turn your dream of a Yale education into a reality.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is currently unavailable due to technical issues. The Department of Education and IRS are working to resolve the situation but do not yet have an estimate for when the tool will be available again. At this time, we recommend that students request a Tax Return Transcript instead of using Data Retrieval.    Read more about IRS verification options
