Yale awards all undergraduate financial aid on the basis of financial need, with the goal of making a Yale education affordable for everyone. The resources on this site and the staff at the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid can help you turn your dream of a Yale education into a reality.
See what Yale's financial aid means for your family
Yale offers two tools for estimating what a Yale undergraduate education would cost after accounting for financial aid. The Quick Cost Estimator provides a ballpark estimate based on six simple questions. The Net Price Calculator provides a more detailed estimate, using more information about your family's finances.
Submitting financial aid documents
- Use the College Board's IDOC Service to submit tax returns and other documentation. For more information about this service, see IDOC under Financial Aid Terminology or visit the College Board website.
- Undergraduate aid applicants may submit required Yale forms through the Online Document Upload Tool.
Please allow up to two business days for processing.
