2014–2015 Yale Application for Undergraduate Financial Aid

Download the form. Fill in electronically, print, sign, and submit to Student Financial Services.

2014–2015 CSS Profile Application
(Available October 1)

Apply on line on the College Board's Web site. Yale's CSS College Code is 3987. Yale receives your profile data electronically from CSS so you do not send copies or printouts of your application to Yale.

Please note: At Yale we ask our international financial aid applicants to use the online College Board CSS Profile if they are able to do so. This option provides Yale with more accurate and complete financial information, a consistent calculation of ability to pay, and quicker access to financial information without the delay of mailing, sorting, and imaging required for our systems. For those students who are not able to use the online CSS Profile (because of lack of internet access, lack of credit card access, or other financial difficulties), please contact our office.
