Payment Options

There are a variety of options offered for making payments toward your Student Account. Please note:

  • All bills must be paid in U.S. currency.
  • Yale does not accept credit or debit cards for Student Account payments.
  • Payments should not be made to a student account that are in excess of the balance due (net of pending financial aid credits). Yale reserves the right to return any overpayments.

 eBill-ePay

Yale University eBill-ePay is the preferred means for payment of bills. Electronic payments are easy and convenient and can be made by anyone with a U.S. checking account. There is no charge to use this service. Bank information is password-protected and secure, and there is a printable confirmation receipt. Payments are immediately posted to the student account, which allows you to make payments 365/24/7 up to 4 PM ET on the due date of the bill, from any location, and avoid late fees.

Checks and cash

For those who choose to pay by check, a remittance advice and mailing instructions are included with the online bill available on the eBill-ePay website. Checks should be made payable to Yale University, in U.S. dollars, and drawn on a U.S. bank. To avoid late fees, please allow for adequate mailing time to ensure that payment is received by 4:00 PM ET on the due date.
