Office of Financial Aid
The Office of Financial aid at the Yale School of Nursing’s primary goal is to evaluate students and distribute both Federal and institutional aid in a fair and equitable manner. This is done through the evaluation the various financial applications that students submit for financial aid consideration.
Refunds of credit balances in student accounts must be requested on Student Information Systems (SIS). After logging in, select Student Accounts and then Refund Request from Student Account.
Refund requests will be processed when the following conditions have been met:
- Classes for the applicable term have begun.
- Your “Anticipated Aid” has been received and credited to your student account.
- If the credit balance is the result of an overpayment by check or an online payment, 30 days have passed since receipt of the payment.
The fastest and most convenient way to receive a refund is by direct deposit to your personal checking account (for banks located within the United States only). You can enroll for direct deposit of your Student Account refund through SIS. After logging in, select Student Accounts and then Direct Deposit Authorization. Then, for the duration of your stay at Yale, any time you request a refund, the funds will be electronically deposited into your personal checking account within two banking days from the time we send the information to the national Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. All such direct deposit refund information will be sent to our bank for the ACH system one time (at mid-afternoon) each day (other than bank holidays) that our Cashier’s Office is open. Yale will automatically send an e-mail to you each time that a refund is sent electronically to your checking account. It is your responsibility to verify the availability of funds in your checking account before you make any transactions (writing checks, etc.).
Due to the current environment posed by COVID-19, Student Financial Services is closed to walk-in traffic until further notice. All staff are working remotely and remain available during our normal business hours. Please use our Contact Us form to submit your questions online.
