Tuition & Living Costs

For the academic year 2015-2016, the tuition for full-time study at the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is $38,700. Doctoral candidates receive a full tuition fellowship.

The following estimations of the cost of living in New Haven for the 2015-2016 academic year are made available as a general reference for graduate students and used by the Office of Financial Aid to calculate financial need as required by certain funding sources. The figures include room and board, transportation, personal expenses and academic expenses excluding tuition.

These figures also include the cost of hospitalization. Living expenses for doctoral students may be less insofar as they are eligible to receive a health award that covers the full cost of the single-student hospitalization and specialty coverage in the Yale Health Plan, half the cost of two-person coverage, and the full cost of family coverage.
