Yale’s estimate of what a student could earn through term-time employment. Earnings from a term-time job are paid directly to the student, and nearly all students use these earnings to cover Unbilled Expenses such as books, laundry, and travel to and from campus. For more information on student jobs, visit the Student Employment website.
Outside merit scholarships can replace some or all of a student’s expected term-time earnings. Students who choose not to work on campus may also take out loans to cover expenses. For more information, see Scholarships and Grants and Loan Options under Types of Aid and Other Financial Resources.
