FINANCIAL AID

In conformity with University policy, financial assistance is determined only after a student has been accepted for admission and is awarded solely on the basis of financial need and available resources within the Yale School of Art. There are no scholarships based on merit or any criteria other than financial need. For the purpose of awards, the School determines need in accordance with formulas established by federal and institutional methodologies.

Financial Aid Application Deadline March 15th.*

Individuals in default of a student loan will not be granted a financial aid award until clearance of such a default is provided to the School. Financial aid, whether in the form of loan, scholarship, or job, is authorized contingent upon the student’s maintaining a satisfactory grade in all academic work during each term.

Employment

The Student Employment Office, 246 Church Street (www.yale.edu/seo), assists self-supporting students in obtaining part-time employment within the University. Most work-study jobs are assigned by the School of Art, at the beginning of the term, for employment within the graduate art departments. Many students in the School obtain off-campus freelance or weekly part-time jobs.

Assistantships

Appointments to teaching assistantships are made by the dean and faculty of the School of Art and are usually given only to second-year students. A student may not apply for an assistantship because all appointments are based on individual merit and performance qualifications and not on financial need. A U.S. Social Security number is required in order to be paid as a teaching assistant. Teaching assistantships may be for one or two terms and the gross monthly payments generally range between $500 and $700.

STATEMENT ON SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION AND ANTI-DRUG ABUSE ACT CERTIFICATION

To receive Title IV funds (Stafford, Perkins, or Federal Work-Study [FWS]) a student must complete a Statement of Educational Purpose that either confirms that the individual has registered for Selective Service or states the reason why he or she is not required to do so. If required to do so, a student must be registered with Selective Service. If false information is purposely given on this form, the student may be subject to fine or imprisonment or both (20 U.S.C. 1091 and 50 U.S.C. App. 462). In addition, to receive Title IV funds a student must be willing to certify that his or her eligibility for aid is not currently suspended or terminated for a conviction for drug distribution or possession (section 5301 of P.L. 100-690).
