Stipends & Direct Deposit

Back to Categories List

If you have questions about your stipend you should first review your Payslip to see the details of your payment and any deductions (such as tax withholding or bursar deductions) that may have occurred. Your payslips may also be necessary when it’s time to file your tax return at the end of the year. You can view your Payslip via Workday at: www.your.yale.edu. Sign in with your net ID and passcode.  Select Workday at the top of the screen and then select the Pay worklet. Then select Payslips which can be found under the category View.  Questions can be directed to the Graduate School Financial Aid Office by phone (203) 432-2739, or by e-mail at: gradfinaid@yale.edu.

Yes, we encourage students to set up direct deposit after August 16th. Once you have opened a bank account, you may do so via Workday. Students should log onto the website: www.your.yale.edu using their net ID and password. The student will then be able to set up direct deposit by selecting the Pay worklet and then select Payment Elections. Students will not be able to set up their direct deposit (Payment Elections) until after the start of the fellowship period or until a payroll record is created. Once a student has established direct deposit, it can take up to two pay periods for the direct deposit to take effect. 

Students who encounter difficulty with the direct deposit process or the on-line view of their stipend statements should contact the Employee Service Center at 203-432-5552 or via e-mail. Neither the Financial Aid Office nor Student Financial Services is able to provide technical support for this system.

New PhD students will receive the first stipend payment on August 31 and there will be 25 semi-monthly stipend payments in the first year.  You can divide the stipend amount from your admit letter by 25 to determine how much you will receive in each payment. Your stipend will be paid twice each month, on the 15th and the last day of the month (or the Friday before if the pay date falls on a weekend or holiday).
