Fall Term Financial Hold

If the balance due on your July account statement, which was due by August 1, is still unpaid, your account is now on Financial Hold.  The Financial Hold will remain until that balance is paid.  The University will not fulfill requests for transcripts for students whose accounts are on Financial Hold.  To avoid future penalties, please satisfy your financial obligation. 

Yale Health Coverage Waiver

Waiver requests for Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care Coverage for the fall term must be submitted online no later than September 15th. Please call Yale Health Member Services at (203) 432-0246 or e-mail member.services@yale.edu if you need additional information.

Yale College Student Activities Fee

The Yale College Student Activities Fee benefits all undergraduate students. It ensures adequate funding for student organizations, club sports, and student events. The quality of special events such as Spring Fling, Fall Show, Iron Chef Yale, Community Service Week, and cultural shows all rely on participation in the Student Activities Fee. Services such as the YCC Bass DVD Library, the UOFC capital equipment project, and the YCC Bike Share program also draw from Student Activities Fee funding. Funds will be managed by the Yale College Dean’s Office with significant input from undergraduates. Participation in the optional Student Activities Fee program will ensure a more robust offering of activities for all undergraduates.

If desired, students may opt out of paying the Fee by logging into Student Information Systems (SIS) and selecting the Yale College Student Activities Fee Waiver box from the Main Menu. This must be done prior to 5:00 p.m. on September 15.

Yale College Senior Class Dues

Yale College seniors will find the charge of $118 for Senior Class Dues on their July Student Account statements.

Senior Class Dues provide resources to support Senior Class Council-sponsored term-time programs as well as post-Yale activities. In prior years, Senior Class Dues have paid for the Fall B-B-Q, Masquerade (Winter) Ball, Mohegan Sun Casino excursion, Pizza Nights, Senior Nights at local establishments, Senior Week events on campus, British Art Center reception, and Commencement Ball.

The payment of Senior Class Dues is optional; however, the benefit of free admission to Senior Class Council–sponsored activities is limited to seniors who have paid the Dues. If desired, students may opt out of paying the Dues by logging into Student Information Systems (SIS) and selecting the Yale College Senior Class Dues Waiver box from the Main Menu. This must be done prior to 5:00 p.m. on September 15.
