Registration & Calendar


All students must attend registration in person. The dates of registration for each session are given in the Academic and Residential Calendar (see below). A student enrolled in more than one session who has paid all summer tuition and fees may register only once, at the earliest session attended. Students who owe tuition and/or fees for the second session are required to register again at the start of the second session. No student may register or check into campus housing unless tuition and fees have been paid in advance, including any outstanding balances from previous terms.

Any student who has not paid all charges in full for the session in progress by the end of the second week will be disenrolled from all courses and required to leave the program.

Students must notify Yale Summer Session in writing if they cannot attend the scheduled registration, and a late registration fee will apply. Attendance at a class does not constitute registration or enrollment.
