Financing Your Education

The university provides access to several resources ranging from assistance with financing your education to eliminating student loan debt.

Continuing Your Education with Financial Assistance from Yale

Eligible employees have access to multiple programs to help reduce the cost of higher education. Additional information and how to apply for tuition assistance can be found on the Educational Assistance Programs page.

Reducing Student Loan Debt

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) is a federal program designed to reduce the burden of student loan debt for eligible individuals who work for qualified public interest employers. As a not-for-profit university, Yale is a qualified employer for the PSLF and as such employees who meet eligibility criteria set by the federal government may be able to reduce their student loan debt.

Employees can find additional information about reducing student loan debt, eligibility and how to enroll on the Student Aid website.

Bright Horizon College Coach

Eligible Yale University Faculty, Managerial and Professional staff, and Post-Doctoral Associates have exclusive access to Bright Horizons College Coach.  While this benefit is used for navigating your child’s education, it may also be useful for your own student loan repayment or future education decisions. Bright Horizons College Coach provides access to live events that cover a range of topics, including determining the best way to pay for higher education and strategies for student loan repayment.

Eligible employees can find additional information and how to register for an educational event on the College Coach page.
