Yale Payment Plan

The Yale Payment Plan (YPP), administered by the University’s Office of Student Financial Services, provides parents and students with the option to pay education expenses on a monthly basis. The YPP is designed to relieve the pressure of lump-sum payments by allowing families to spread payments over a period of months without incurring any interest charges. Participation is optional and elected on an annual basis. The cost to enroll is $100 per contract.

If you choose to enroll in the annual plan (10 monthly payments), one-half of the Total Plan Amount will be applied toward each of the academic terms (Fall and Spring) by issuing a credit to your Student Account for this amount. If you enroll in either the Fall- or Spring-only plan (5 monthly payments per term), the Total Plan Amount will be credited to your student account for the corresponding term.

Billing and payment

Yale has contracted with ACS, Inc., a Xerox company, to provide electronic billing and payment services for the Yale Payment Plan. Each month, ACS will bill participants in the YPP for the amount they have contracted to pay on a monthly basis through the YPP. This bill will be mailed (or, at the payer’s option, provided electronically) by ACS to the YPP participant (i.e., the payer). In addition to the monthly YPP bill, the monthly Student Account statement will be provided electronically through Yale University eBill-ePay. It is very important that YPP participants continue to review the monthly Student Account statement (eBill) for other charges that are not being paid for through the YPP contract.

The YPP has been effective for those wishing to pay monthly. Please visit the Yale Payment Plan website to enroll.
