July 2016 Monthly Messages

Fall Term Payment Deadline


Payment for the July/fall-term bill must be received at Yale by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time August 1, 2016 in order to avoid being assessed a late fee of $125 per month (up to a total of $375 per term). We strongly urge you to make your payment early enough for it to arrive by the due date. This can most reliably be accomplished by using Yale eBill-ePay to make your payment electronically at no extra cost.

If you use overnight mail, and only for overnight mail, the following address must be used: 

Student Financial Services Cashiers Office 
246 Church Street,
1st Floor
New Haven, CT 06510

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. Your July Student Account statement reflects Yale Health waivers submitted online through June 26th. Please call Yale Health Member Services at (203) 432-0246 or e-mail member.services@yale.edu if you need additional information.

Yale Payment Plan


For participants in the Yale Payment Plan (YPP), your July student account statement reflects the fall 2016 portion of the YPP contract for enrollments received through July 1st.

For those still interested in participating in the YPP for the 2016–2017 academic year, the deadline has been extended to July 25th. Please visit our Yale Payment Plan page to learn more about the Plan and to enroll online.

Yale College Student Activities Fee


Yale College students will find the annual Student Activities Fee of $125 on their July Student Account statements.

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 new 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 $117 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.

Outside Resource Form


If you are a Yale College student and have not yet advised Student Financial Services of an outside scholarship that will be paid directly to Yale University, please complete an Outside Scholarship/Resource Update Form and fax it to (203) 436-9768. College Savings Plans and Prepaid Tuition Plans are not outside scholarships and, therefore, should not be reported on this form.
