Refund Policies

Yale Summer Session will refund tuition and room and meal payments according to the terms listed below. No refunds will be made unless we have received appropriate written notification. A Yale student's Student Financial Services account will be credited.

Tuition

A full tuition refund will be issued if a student notifies the Yale Summer Session Office, prior to the start of the relevant five-week session, of their intention not to attend courses in that session via the Change Form on the Yale Summer Session website.

A. If a student drops a course or withdraws entirely from Yale Summer Session by 5:00 p.m. Friday of the first week of the relevant five-week session, 100% of the tuition will be refunded or credited.
B. If a student drops a course or withdraws entirely from Yale Summer Session by 5:00 p.m. Friday of the second week of the relevant five-week session, 50% of the tuition will be refunded or credited.

Students using YSS-COVID-19 Courses should refer to the section on using YSS COVID-19 Courses for policies governing course changes, drops, and withdrawals.

Room and Board

Once a student is in residence, he or she will be entitled to a partial room and meal refund only by vacating the room by Friday at 5:00 p.m. of the first week of classes. No refunds will be made after this time. The student will be charged the rate for room and meals for each of the days in residence. Before a refund can be made the student must have his or her room inspected and then return room keys and ID card (if a visiting student), to the Housing Manager in the Summer Housing Office.
