Tuition and Refund Policy
PLEASE NOTE: The initial deposit of $2,500 is NON-REFUNDABLE. As a participating member of the YU SDAJIP, and to maintain uniformity, we have adopted their refund policy for all Midreshet Eshel students. Should a student leave, remaining tuition payments are refundable on a prorated basis per semester, according to the following schedule:
Students who withdraw before the first day of classes are entitled to a 100% refund.
Students who withdraw during the first week of the semester receive a 75% of tuition refund.
Students who withdraw during the second week of the semester receive a 50% of tuition refund.
Students who withdraw during the third week of the semester receive a 25% refund.
No refund is given to a student who withdraws after the third week.
At any point throughout the year, if a student is asked to leave for not adhering to any of our school policies (outlined in our student handbook and reviewed at our student orientation), there will be no refund given.
Midreshet Eshel is part of Yeshiva University’s S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program as well as the Touro Israel Option.
Upon successful completion of the school year, students are given a transcript to be evaluated by their college of choice and may earn up to a full year of College credit in accordance with individual school policy.
YU Israel Program
The S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program enables students to study in Israel while officially remaining a YU student. There are many benefits to being on this program, including access to federal and New York State financial aid programs and flexible monthly payment plans.
What Is the Cost?
Each institution in the S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program establishes its own tuition and fees. Yeshiva University collects that amount on behalf of the institution. Yeshiva University begins sending invoices to students in June each year. The institution in Israel will collect a deposit directly along with other miscellaneous fees such as those for medical insurance and tourism. These fees will not be reflected on Yeshiva University invoice. The Israel institutional will detail the total tuition and fees you are expected to pay.
In addition to the tuition and fees established by the Israel institution, YU charges a $750 Program Participation Fee. A deposit of $250 is due with the student enrollment paper work and the remaining $500 will be billed with tuition.

What Aid Is Available?
Students who participate in the S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program may receive federal and state aid if they are eligible. They apply in the same manner as do students on campus in New York City at www.fafsa.gov. Students should apply for financial aid for the S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program after January 1st of the year the student will attend the Israel Program. New York State residents will receive a TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) application as a result of filing the FAFSA.
Yeshiva University institutional aid is not available for study in Israel. However, all Federal and State aid is available including Pell, Work-study and Stafford Loans as well as New York State Tuition Assistance (TAP) Grant (if eligible). It is important to apply early so the money is available for your attendance on the Israel Program. Once the processed FAFSA is received by the Office of Student Aid, a Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to you, which will outline the Financial Aid available.
MASA application is not available through Yeshiva University. Student should consult with Israel institution.
Withdrawal Procedure and Refund Policy
Students must present withdrawals in writing to both the Israel institution and the YU office in Israel or New York. Once a student’s payment has been processed by YU’s Israel Program and paid to the Israel institution, the student must address all issues involving refunds directly to the Israel institution. Students should contact Israel institution for withdrawal and refund policy.
If a student changes schools in Israel after the bill has been paid, the student must arrange for the first institution to transfer all payments to the second institution.
