Program Budgets

Current costs for the upcoming summer are generally available in late January. Refer to each program page to view the most up to date budget information. Please note that program costs may be subject to change in the event of significant fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

Payment Information

FAQ: Why am I charged a deposit, and when do I pay the full amount?

A $200 non-refundable Program Deposit is charged upon admission to hold your place in the program and to cover any initial deposit fees for program activities. All program charges (deposit, tuition, program fee, insurance, international housing and, if applicable, on-campus housing) are to be paid in full no later than two weeks before the start date of the program. All payments are made to Student Financial Services.

FAQ: What charges will appear on the bill I receive from Student​ Financial Services?

Student Financial Services will bill you for the $200 non-refundable Program Deposit, relevant Program Fee, tuition, international health insurance, and the international housing charge. The bill will reflect any scholarships or awards you have received. If a particular program charges you directly for additional fees, that charge will also appear on your bill. If you are participating in a language program with a New Haven component, be aware that the international housing charge and the on-campus room/board charge may appear in different billing statements.

FAQ: Where do I make payments?

Payments are processed by the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS). Payments in the form of a check should be out to Yale University and sent to SFS at P.O. Box 208232, New Haven, CT 06520-8232. Yale students can pay online through ePay.

FAQ: Where can I find a list of payment deadlines and information about cancelation fees?

Payment deadlines and cancelation fees for the upcoming summer will be available in late January. This information will be available in your MyCIPE account and posted here. 

FAQ: How will my International Summer Award (ISA) be applied?

If you are the recipient an International Summer Award (ISA), these funds will be directly deposited into your student account. Student Financial Services administers the ISA, making every effort to process the awards as soon as possible. If there is a balance due for your program, you can pay the difference after the funds are deposited. However, please note the following:

  • You should not wait for the ISA funds to be disbursed before making your travel arrangements; purchase your airline ticket soon after you are admitted to get the best possible price.
  • The ISA only covers expenses related to the overseas portion of faculty-led programs. If you are participating in a language program which begins in New Haven, your housing costs on campus will not be included as part of the ISA award calculation.
  • You should pay any remaining balance on your spring semester bill before ISA funds are posted.

FAQ: Who should I contact if I have questions about billing or payments?
