    Financial Matters

    Yale-NUS College is committed to making our unique living and learning experience financially accessible to all of our students. Our admission process is 100% need-blind. This means we admit students based on their ability to thrive and contribute to Yale-NUS, not based on their ability to pay college fees.

    All students – regardless of nationality, background or financial resources – have access to consideration for financial support from the College.

    We believe financing your education comes with being able to plan for future costs. As such, Yale-NUS fees are cohort-based, ensuring your fees are the same in Year 4 as they are in Year 1. No surprise increases! For those with Singapore National Service obligations, you will pay tuition fees relevant to the year you accept our offer of admission.

    Tuition Grant

    The Tuition Grant (TG) Scheme is offered by the Government of Singapore to international and Singapore permanent resident students pursuing a course of study at Yale-NUS. The TG Scheme offers a subsidised tuition rate (as outlined below) and comes with a three-year work obligation upon graduation. In order to satisfy the work obligation, students must work for a Singapore entity or an overseas affiliate while remaining on the Singapore payroll. All earnings within the three-year work period will be kept by the student.

    Where the three-year obligation is not fulfilled, students will pay liquidated damages (pro-rated) to the Singapore Ministry of Education, equivalent in value to the total TG/subsidy provided to the student throughout his/her course of study at Yale-NUS.

    Students who choose not to take up the TG will be required to pay an additional annual Supplementary Fee of S$19,650 (on top of the subsidised tuition fee), but will not have any work obligation upon graduation.

    All Singapore citizens will receive the Tuition Grant without any work obligation.

    For additional information on the TG Scheme, please refer to these FAQs

    For students under the Yale-NUS & Duke-NUS Liberal Arts and Medicine Pathway, please refer to additional information on Tuition Grant obligation here.

    Residential College Fees

    All students at Yale-NUS live on campus in one of our three distinctive Residential Colleges. This includes a single room situated within a suite and 19 meals a week in a Yale-NUS dining hall.

    Miscellaneous Student Fees

    Miscellaneous Student Fees contribute to the cost of student activities, health services and insurance, campus shuttle services and other services incurred by all students.

    Fees

    Yale-NUS fees are cohort-based, which means your fees will not increase on an annual basis. Fees listed below are applicable for Academic Year 2019-2020. All published rates and student bills are provided in Singapore dollars (S$).
