My financial aid exceeds my tuition and fees, how do I access my refund?
This process is for students who will receive refunds in excess of their tuition and fee charges and will need a refund for living expenses. Refund requests will be processed once classes for the applicable term have begun and all of your financial aid has been received and credited to your student account (usually toward the end of August).
The fastest and most convenient way to receive a refund is by direct deposit to your personal U.S. checking account. Once you've arrived in the United States and opened up a bank account, you can enroll for direct deposit for your refund through Yale Hub, After logging in, select Student Accounts -> Direct Deposit Authorization. After the refund request has been submitted, you can expect to see the funds in your checking account within 2-3 banking days.
