Yale students must fill out the online application to apply to Yale Summer Session.

Academic Information for Yale College Students

Students select their courses in their online application.  Because of the condensed nature of the summer courses, there is no shopping period during Summer Session.  In addition, the window for changing courses is very short.  Once admitted to a course, students will receive grades unless they drop the course or withdraw by filling out a form online, or in person in the Yale Summer Session office.  If you need advice on course selection, please contact the Dean of Yale Summer Session.

Tip: Yale College students may take a maximum of two online courses during each summer and can only apply a total of four online courses toward their Yale College degree.
