At Yale School of Medicine, MD applicants are admitted regardless of their ability to pay, and our financial aid meets the full calculated need for every student. We believe it’s vital to ensure that medical school is within reach for students of all backgrounds, resulting in a medical work force that better reflects the population it serves.
We recommend that applicants who plan to apply for financial aid have their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and CSS Profile Application (if applicable) on file with us before the time of acceptance.
To assist you with the financial aid process, we have created a checklist of the materials you need to complete.
