Applying for Financial Aid

All students, including merit scholars, must complete a new financial aid application each year. Students can expect to receive a similar scholarship award each academic year if their enrollment status does not change.

Financial aid documents such as PDF forms should be submitted via the secure YDS Financial Aid Document Upload. For security reasons, please do not submit financial aid documents via e-mail.
