2013–2014 CSS Profile Application
(Available October 1)

Apply online at 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 are asking 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.
