Fee Waivers

Yale School of Medicine will automatically waive the Secondary Application fee for applicants who have been granted an AMCAS Fee Waiver (obtained though the AAMC Fee Assistance Program).

Applicants who were not granted a fee waiver by AMCAS and for whom the application fee would constitute a significant financial burden, may contact the Office of Admissions directly ( to request a Secondary Application fee waiver. Please submit your fee waiver request after you have been invited to submit the YSM Secondary Application. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

In your fee waiver request, please detail the reasons for your request, and include the number of people in your household and annual family income. Please also attach documentation that you deem important to support your request.
