Demonstrating Eligibility

International students are eligible to apply for need-based financial aid by completing the Yale Law School Financial Aid Application. International students are also eligible to apply for a Yale Student Loan to cover the cost of attendance.  

 Complete the Yale Law School International Student Application:

  • This application will determine your eligibility for both grants and need-based loan.
  • Students who will be 28 years old (or younger) on September 1 need to submit parental information. Students who will be at least 29 years old on September 1 do not need to submit parental information.
  • Married students will also need to submit their spouse’s information.

Deadline: Continuing students must complete the Yale Law School International Student Application by April 15, 2011. Grants from the Law School may not be available for students whose analysis is received after April 15, 2011.

After You Receive Your Award

After we have received your application, we will process it and provide you with an award letter. This letter will specify the amounts of loans and grants that you are eligible for, as well as describe the student, parental and spousal contributions that we expect from you.

International students are eligible to apply for a Yale Graduate and Professional International Loan to cover the cost of attendance.

You are not obligated to take out the full amount of loans that are included in your award letter. We encourage you to think carefully about the amount of loans that you will really need.

You may take out loans to replace the expected student, spousal and parental contributions. Loans taken to replace the parental contributions will generally be covered by COAP. Loans taken to replace student’s contribution and loans that exceed the standard budget generally will not be covered by COAP.
