Required Forms How to Apply/Where to Send
Yale Financial Aid Application

There is no Institutional Financial Aid Application required at this time. A supplemental application will be sent to matriculated students in May.

2014–2015 CSS Profile Application
(Available October 1)

Apply online at profileonline.collegeboard.com. 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 mailling, 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.

Parents’ 2012 tax return(s) Submit signed and translated copies of your parents’ 2012 federal tax returns (including all W2 forms and schedules, and other earnings statements) to Student Financial Services. If your parents do not file a tax return, you should submit documentation of their income, such as a letter from their employer.
International Noncustodial Parent Statement (Only required if your parents are divorced, separated, or were never married.) Download and submit directly to Student Financial Services along with a copy of your noncustodial parent’s 2012 tax return/income information.
International Business Supplement
(Only required if your parent(s) are self-employed or own a business.)
Download and submit directly to Student Financial Services.
