A term that describes both Student Employment and the Student Summer Income Contribution. Together, this represents what a student should expect to pay toward her or his Yale education. The standard amounts for the 2017–2018 school year are:
|Student Employment||term-time job, outside scholarship, other family resources, or loan||$2,850||$3,350||$3,350||$3,350|
|Student Summer Income Contribution||summer job, outside scholarship, other family resources, or loan||$1,600||$2,600||$2,600||$2,600|
The Student Summer Income portion of Student Effort may be lower for some non-Canadian international students.
Outside merit scholarships can be used toward both parts of Student Effort; they are used to reduce Student Employment first. Students may also borrow loans to cover all or part of the Student Effort amount.
Part of the Expected Family Contribution.
