Students who have applied for admission and would like to be considered for financial support at NYU Abu Dhabi must submit the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE application (and Noncustodial PROFILE, if applicable) administered by the College Board. NYU Abu Dhabi accepts applications for financial support from all students, regardless of citizenship.

The 2017-2018 CSS/Financail Aid PROFILE application (and Noncustodial PROFILE) will be available as of October 1, 2016.

Applying for Financial Support Using the CSS PROFILE Application

The CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE application is personalized for each student based on the information the student provides when registering for the service.

Instructions for getting started:

  • Read the PROFILE Student Guide, which provides information on how students register to use the CSS PROFILE and answers frequently asked questions about the application.

  • Create an account to complete the registration process for a personalized application.

  • After creating an account, the applicant can begin to complete the CSS PROFILE online.

  • Applicants must include New York University's CSS school code on the application in order for NYU Abu Dhabi to receive it for review. NYU's CSS school code is 2785. Note: there is only one CSS school code (2785) for all of New York University's global network campuses, including NYU Abu Dhabi.

  • Students who feel that the CSS PROFILE application fee would be a financial hardship may request a CSS PROFILE fee waiver code. Please email the Office of Admissions at to request a fee waiver code before submitting the CSS PROFILE as no reimbursements can be granted if an applicant has already paid the fee prior to receiving a waiver code.
    • In the email request, students should include their first (given) and last (family) names, along with the Common Application ID number and NYU ID number if one has been issued.

  • Students will be notified by the NYU Abu Dhabi Office of Financial Support if additional documentation is required to verify the information reported on their CSS PROFILE applications.
