Message from the Director of Financial Aid

For many students, receiving a letter from the Dean of Admissions represents the fulfillment of a long-held dream of joining Yale’s celebrated community of scholars and friends. At Yale’s Office of Student Financial Services, our mission is to help make that dream a reality.

More than forty years ago Yale became the first private research university in America to establish need-blind admissions and need-based financial aid for its undergraduates. Since then, making a Yale education affordable for every student admitted has been one of our core principles. We are committed to making the process of paying for your Yale education as manageable, clear, and efficient as possible.
