The Coalition Application

The Coalition Application is one of three ways to apply to Yale for first-year admission. See if the Coalition Application is right for you. 

Yale is a member of the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success, an application platform offered by a diverse group of more than 150 public and private US colleges and universities. Every Coalition institution provides need-based financial aid or low-cost in-state tuition, and has a six-year graduation rate of at least 70%. Yale’s six-year graduation rate is 97%.

The Coalition Application is one of three ways to apply to Yale for first-year admission. Yale has no preference for one type of application over another. Submit one - and only one - application per admissions cycle.

Reasons why the Coalition Application might be right for you: 

  • The Coalition Application allows students to enter personal information once that will populate the applicable sections of all their Coalition applications. Note that Yale also requires applicants to respond to several Yale-specific supplemental questions.
  • The Coalition Application is powered by Scoir, a software platform that many students and counselors already use to manage college application data. Scoir accounts are free for all students, regardless of whether their high school uses Scoir. Counselors who use a different college guidance management system, or no college guidance management system, can support their students with their existing processes and tools.

The Coalition Application and Yale-specific questions will be available by September 1. To create an account, visit
