Note- if you are a returning student who has not yet borrowed through student loans at YLS you will also need to complete the requirements to “Establish Student Loans” under the Financial Aid Requirements for New Admits.  If you are a returning student who has not previously applied for need based scholarship support but now seeks consideration, you must submit the required tax documentation identified under the Financial Aid Requirements for New Admits.

Notes on Requirements:

  • FAFSA [used to determine eligibility for federal student loans]:
    • Yale Law School’s Title IV federal code number is 001426
    • Regardless of age, it is not necessary to submit parental information on the FAFSA.
    • Married students will need to submit their spouse’s information.
    • You must e-sign the FAFSA using your assigned PIN
  • Need Access [used to determine eligibility for institutional scholarships]:
    • Students who will be 28 years old (or younger) on December 31, 2015 need to submit parental information. Students who will be at least 29 years old on December 31, 2015 do not need to submit parental information.
    • Married students will need to submit their spouses' information.
    • Some questions on Need Access reflect data required for the purpose of specific scholarships fund eligibility and are used solely for that purpose.  
  • Notification and Confirmation Form:
    • This form acts as your acceptance of the aid award offered.  Please complete Section A indicating if you are declining or accepting any portion of the loans awarded.
    • In addition to the unit loans offered in your award letter, you may choose to borrow additional funds to cover the calculated parent, spouse or student contribution(s).  If you choose to do this, you should indicate the additional borrowing requested in Section A.  Note that only additional borrowing to support the calculated parent contribution is COAP eligible.
    • If you are opting to use a private loan, you should indicate the lender, lender ID and type of loan in the appropriate fields in Section A.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  YLS does not collect tax documentation on the student, spouse or parent as part of the routine financial aid re-application process for returning (2L and 3L) students.  However, YLS Financial Aid reserves the right to request and students are responsible for submitting an additional documentation (including tax documentation)  as needed for the purposes of reconciling discrepancies, providing clarification of application data, or for federal verification purposes.
