Year or Term Abroad Costs and Funding

Program Costs

Programs and universities will post tuition and related costs on their specific websites. We invite you to refer to the Budgeting section for tips on financial planning for study abroad. 

Payment Information

FAQ: Do I pay Yale tuition or fees for the term(s) I am abroad? 

If you study abroad for a summer, semester, or year on a designated (non-Yale) program, you will not pay tuition or fees to Yale for the term you are abroad. You will pay the cost of tuition for your program or university, and any associated fees.

FAQ: How do I pay my study abroad program or university tuition? 

The university or program abroad will bill you for tuition, room and board, as well as any other fees associated with attending. It is your responsibility to pay all program costs directly to the study abroad program or university.

FAQ: I receive Yale financial aid. How will that be applied to my study abroad costs?

  • If you have applied and been approved for the Year or Term Abroad, you are eligible to apply for Yale financial aid. Information about how Yale financial aid applies to designated (non-Yale) program costs is found on the Student Financial Services website
  • If you have applied and been approved for a Summer Abroad, you are eligible to apply for the International Summer Award (ISA). The application process and deadlines are found on the ISA website

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

All questions regarding your bill should be addressed to the program or university you will attend. If you have a question regarding Yale financial aid for a Year or Term Abroad, please contact Student Financial Services.

You will be billed by Yale for the Bocconi tuition fee of $5,000. This fee includes tuition and medical insurance through UnitedHealthcare Global. Bocconi provides residence hall housing for exchange students and you are responsible for selecting and paying for your own housing, as well as the cost of food, flights, books, and personal expenses. If you receive Yale financial aid, that can be applied to the costs of this program. For general information about Bocconi, review the program page.

You also will be charged for, and enrolled in, medical insurance through UnitedHealthcare Global. Students choosing to stay on campus during the break between the Hilary and Trinity terms in the spring must pay for lodging, which is an additional cost.
