Joint Degree Programs

My financial aid exceeds my tuition and fees, how do I access my refund?

Students who are eligible for a refund can initiate the refund process once classes for the applicable term have begun, and all financial aid has been received and credited to your account. The quickest and most convenient way to receive your refund is by setting up direct deposit. To apply for direct deposit, log onto Student Information Systems (SIS), select Student Accounts and then Direct Deposit Authorization. Once there is a credit on your account and your direct deposit has been set up, students can then request their refund on Student Information Systems (SIS) by selecting Student Accounts and then Refund Request from Student Account. The funds will be electronically deposited into your personal checking account within two banking days from the time Student Financial Services sends the information to the national Automated Clearing House (ACH) system.

I need access to my 1098-T for tax filing purposes. How do I access it?

1098-T forms are mailed each year by January 31st to the student’s billing address on file in SIS. (If there is no billing address on file, the form is mailed to the student’s permanent address; if no permanent address is on file, the form is mailed to the student’s mailing address in SIS.) The 1098-T forms are also available to students online through Student Information Systems, under the Student Accounts menu or to students and proxies on the YalePay website.
