Yale Summer Session courses taught exclusively online are offered in the summer as a way for students to take Yale College courses for credit without being in a physical classroom. Much of the learning is synchronous and the course work is equivalent to summer session courses taught in person, in New Haven. Online courses are designated by the letter “E” following the course number, e.g. ECON S115E. These courses may be used to fulfill distributional requirements and in some cases even requirements for the major if approved by the department.
The number of online Summer Session courses that may be applied to a Yale College degree is limited. No more than two such courses may be taken in any given summer, and no more than four online courses may be applied towards a Yale degree. A student must petition the Yale College Committee on Honors and Academic Standing for permission to exceed these limits. In the petition the student must explain the sound pedagogical reasons for an overload of online courses and how such work will not be done at the expense of study being pursued in regular Yale College courses. These limitations are only applicable to Yale College students.
Select online courses are available for audit (non-credit). Auditing an online course allows the student to access and experience a Yale College course without being responsible for the completion of assignments. When auditing a course online you will have access to the same course site, course materials, and assignment instructions - if you wish to complete them - as the for-credit students. In addition, you can participate in the live weekly online discussions. Grading of assignments will be at the discretion of the faculty. Audit fee: $395. Technology fee: $85. Registration deadlines: Session A, May 8, 2017; Session B, June 12, 2017.
