Payment Options

Due to COVID-19, all staff are currently working remotely.  As a result, we strongly encourage student account payments be made online via YalePay.  If you must mail payment, please send checks 1st class (regular) mail to the following address and allow 2 - 3 weeks for processing:

Yale University
P.O. Box 208232
New Haven, CT 06520-8232

Please do not send payments or other documents via overnight or express delivery.

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.

Online Payments through YalePay

Yale’s recommended method of payment is online through YalePay. Online payments are easy and convenient and can be made by anyone with a U.S. checking or savings 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 available on YalePay. 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.

For 1st Class (regular) mail, checks should be sent to the following address:

Yale University
P.O. Box 208232
New Haven, CT 06520-8232

If you are sending your payment via overnight or express delivery (only), please use the following address:
