Tuition and fees are charged on a per-term basis for all programs. These fees are billed on the first business day of July for the fall term and on the first business day of November for the spring term. Payment is due in full by the first business day of August for the fall term and the first business day of December for the spring term.
For 2018–2019 the estimated budget for single M.B.A., M.A.M., and M.M.S. students for tuition, books, fees, and all living costs is $97,165. Of this, program tuition is $69,500; in addition, students are charged a mandatory program fee of $2,120.
The total program fee for the M.B.A. for Executives program in 2018–2019 is $179,800 for first-year students and $172,000 for second-year students. This fee includes tuition, a tablet, books,* study materials, breakfast and lunch on all class days, on-campus parking, and lodging and parking at the Omni New Haven Hotel during residencies and on Friday evenings of all weekend sessions. The cost of hotels and most meals for EMBA Global Network Week is also included in the total program fee.
*EMBA students have the option to purchase textbooks on their own and must indicate a preference to do so by the appropriate term deadline. Program fees are adjusted to reflect a credit for those students who purchase their own textbooks.
Global Studies Financial Support
The School provides a subvention for ten days of international travel to help full-time M.B.A. students defray the cost of fulfilling the Global Studies Requirement (GSR), and a subvention for five days of international travel for M.A.M. students to defray the cost of a Global Network Week or a Global Social Entrepreneurship course. This funding is at the rate of 50 percent of lodging and meal expenses as determined by the per diem rates published by the U.S. Department of State. The full-time M.B.A. subvention applies only to international travel undertaken for options identified in the GSR choice set, and the M.A.M. subvention applies only to international travel undertaken for a Global Network Week or a Global Social Entrepreneurship course. (For full-time M.B.A. choice sets, see Global Studies Requirement in the chapter Full-Time M.B.A. Degree Program.)
- The School covers the International Experience expenses for full-time M.B.A. students with the exception of international air travel costs. Students going on the IE fully consume their allocation of the ten-day subvention. Students must have all ten subvention days remaining to bid on IE courses.
- Full-time M.B.A. students who choose to apply the ten-day subvention to the Global Network Weeks can receive financial support for up to two GN Weeks after completion of the relevant global experience. Full-time M.B.A. students who choose the IE can enroll in GN Weeks but with no additional subvention. Similarly, students who allocate their ten-day (or five-day, as applicable) subvention to GN Week(s) can enroll in additional GN Week(s) (space permitting) without additional subvention.
- The subvention amount is destination-specific and is added to the student’s financial aid budget as a “GSR subvention.”
- Students who do not use their subvention do not receive a refund or credit for any remaining balance.
- The IE bidding process occurs in the late fall. Students enrolled in an IE course (through the course bidding auction) will be deemed to have consumed their ten-day subvention.
- Students who wish to preserve the IE option for the second year can do so by not applying any of the ten-day subvention for international travel in the first year.
- Up to ten days’ subvention is applicable to an International Exchange.
- Although they fulfill the GSR, Global Network courses (SNOCs) carry no subvention value.
GSR subventions will be directly deposited into the student’s account after completion of the relevant global experience and during the term in which it was completed. SOM makes every effort to process the awards as soon as possible. If there is a balance due on a student account, the student must pay the remaining balance on the term bill before funds are posted. Funds will be released to the student’s account after the program completion. The quickest way to receive funds from a student account is by direct deposit to a personal U.S. bank account. Students should not wait for the funds to be disbursed before making their travel arrangements; airline tickets should be purchased soon after admission to a course to get the best possible price.
Tuition Rebate and Refund Policy
On the basis of the federal regulations governing the return of federal student aid (Title IV) funds for withdrawn students, the following rules apply to the rebate and refund of tuition.
- For purposes of determining the refund of federal student aid funds, any student who withdraws from the School of Management for any reason during the first 60 percent of the term will be subject to a pro rata schedule that will be used to determine the amount of Title IV funds a student has earned at the time of withdrawal. A student who withdraws after the 60 percent point has earned 100 percent of the Title IV funds. In 2018–2019, the last days for refunding federal student aid funds will be, in the fall term: October 25, 2018, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; October 28, 2018, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; November 13, 2018, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and November 15, 2018, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and, in the spring term: April 2, 2019, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; April 5, 2019, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; April 27, 2019, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and April 6, 2019, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program.
- For purposes of determining the refund of institutional aid funds and for students who have not received financial aid:
- 100 percent of tuition will be rebated for withdrawals that occur on or before the end of the first 10 percent of the term (in the fall term: August 30, 2018, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; September 7, 2018, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; August 4, 2018, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and August 9, 2018, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and, in the spring term: January 24, 2019, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; January 31, 2019, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; February 26, 2019, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and February 23, 2019, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program).
- A rebate of one-half (50 percent) of tuition will be granted for withdrawals that occur after the first 10 percent but on or before the last day of the first quarter of the term (in the fall term: September 16, 2018, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; September 23, 2018, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; September 4, 2018, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and September 7, 2018, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and, in the spring term: February 9, 2019, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; February 14, 2019, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; March 16, 2019, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and March 8, 2019, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program).
- A rebate of one-quarter (25 percent) of tuition will be granted for withdrawals that occur after the first quarter of a term but on or before the day of midterm (in the fall term: October 14, 2018, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; October 19, 2018, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; October 24, 2018, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and October 27, 2018, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and, in the spring term: March 7, 2019, for first-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program; March 27, 2019, for second-year students in the full-time M.B.A. program and students in the M.A.M. and M.M.S. programs; April 15, 2019, for first-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program; and March 29, 2019, for second-year students in the M.B.A. for Executives program).
- Students who withdraw for any reason after midterm will not receive a rebate of any portion of tuition.
- The death of a student shall cancel charges for tuition as of the date of death, and the bursar will adjust the tuition on a pro rata basis.
- If the student has received student loans or other forms of financial aid, funds will be returned in the order prescribed by federal regulations; namely, first to Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, if any; then to Federal Perkins Loans; Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans; next to any other federal, state, private, or institutional scholarships and loans; and, finally, any remaining balance to the student.
- Recipients of federal and/or institutional loans who withdraw are required to have an exit interview before leaving Yale. Students leaving Yale receive instructions on completing this process from Yale Student Financial Services.

Student Accounts and Bills
Student accounts, billing, and related services are administered through the Office of Student Financial Services, which is located at 246 Church Street. The office’s website is http://student-accounts.yale.edu.
Yale University’s official means of communicating monthly financial account statements is through the University’s Internet-based system for electronic billing and payment, Yale University eBill-ePay. Yale does not mail paper bills.
Student account statements are prepared and made available twelve times a year at the beginning of each month. Payment is due in full by 4 p.m. Eastern Time on the first business day of the following month. E-mail notifications that the account statement is available on the University eBill-ePay website (http://student-accounts.yale.edu/ebep) are sent to all students at their official Yale e-mail addresses and to all student-designated proxies. Students can grant others proxy access to the eBill-ePay system to view the monthly student account statements and make online payments. For more information, see http://sfas.yale.edu/proxy-access-and-authorization.
Bills for tuition, room, and board are available during the first week of July, due and payable by August 1 for the fall term; and during the first week of November, due and payable by December 1 for the spring term. The Office of Student Financial Services will impose late fees of $125 per month (up to a total of $375 per term) if any part of the term bill, less Yale-administered loans and scholarships that have been applied for on a timely basis, is not paid when due. Nonpayment of bills and failure to complete and submit financial aid application packages on a timely basis may result in the student’s involuntary withdrawal from the University.
No degrees will be conferred and no transcripts will be furnished until all bills due the University are paid in full. In addition, transcripts will not be furnished to any student or former student who is in default on the payment of a student loan.
The University may withhold registration and certain University privileges from students who have not paid their term bills or made satisfactory payment arrangements by the day of registration. To avoid delay at registration, students must ensure that payments reach Student Financial Services by the due dates.
There are a variety of options offered for making payments. Yale University eBill-ePay (http://student-accounts.yale.edu/ebep) is the preferred means for payment of your monthly student account bill. The ePayments are immediately posted to the student account. There is no charge to use this service. Bank information is password-protected and secure, and a printable confirmation receipt is available. On bill due dates, payments using the eBill-ePay system can be made up to 4 p.m. Eastern Time in order to avoid late fees.
For those who choose to pay the student account bill by check, a remittance advice and mailing instructions are included with the online bill available on the eBill-ePay website. All bills must be paid in U.S. currency. Checks must be payable in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank. Payments can also be made via wire transfer. Instructions for wire transfer are available on the eBill-ePay website.
Yale does not accept credit card payments.
A processing charge of $25 will be assessed for payments rejected for any reason by the bank on which they were drawn. In addition, the following penalties may apply if a payment is rejected:
- If the payment was for a term bill, late fees of $125 per month will be charged for the period the bill was unpaid, as noted above.
- If the payment was for a term bill to permit registration, the student’s registration may be revoked.
- If the payment was given to settle an unpaid balance in order to receive a diploma, the University may refer the account to an attorney for collection.
Yale Payment Plan
The Yale Payment Plan (YPP) is a payment service that allows students and their families to pay tuition, room, and board in ten equal monthly installments throughout the year based on individual family budget requirements. It is administered by the University’s Office of Student Financial Services. The cost to enroll in the YPP is $100 per contract. The deadline for enrollment is June 25. Additional details concerning the Yale Payment Plan are available at http://student-accounts.yale.edu/ypp.
