Tuition and Financial Aid

Yale Divinity School is committed to enrolling the best possible candidates for admission, based on academic ability and potential; leadership qualities; spiritual maturity; interpersonal communication skills; seriousness of purpose; personal initiative; and creativity.  To that end, admission is need-blind and unrelated to the student’s ability to pay.

The goal of the financial aid program at the Divinity School is to enable students enrolled in its degree programs to manage and meet their institutional and living expenses without diverting undue energy or attention from their educational responsibilities.
