Application Requirements

Yale Summer Session seeks motivated students of all ages who wish to enroll in a program.

Please refer to Dates & Costs for all of the relevant deadlines. All supporting documentation must be received on or before the application deadline. Below the requirement list, we provide further explanation about some of the requirements.

The following materials are required for applicants who are beyond college:

  1. Online application
  2. Academic Transcript (or Resume/CV if you have been out of college for more than ten years)
  3. Health Insurance
  4. Immunization Records


Academic Information for Students Beyond College

  • You'll select your program of study or courses at the time of application in the online application.
  • Two courses per session is the maximum enrollment if you opt to take Yale courses for credit.

Residential Information for Students Beyond College

Students taking part in any Yale Summer Session program may choose to live in one of the summer residential colleges. Yale students serve as residential counselors and provide support and assistance. Visit the student life page for more information about living on campus.

Academic Transcripts

An unofficial transcript or academic record is required as part of the application to Yale Summer Session. 

  • Students who are beyond college should submit a college transcript or resume if out of college for more than 10 years.

The application enables applicants to upload an unofficial copy of their academic records. All academic records must show the name of the institution, dates of enrollment, and the subjects or courses taken, together with the units of credit or time allotted to each subject and the final grade. Applications are evaluated holistically, therefore, we do not have a GPA requirement.

Health Insurance

If you are a U.S. citizens or permanent resident, you will be required to provide evidence of health insurance with hospitalization coverage through a U.S. health insurance provider. You will upload this information into your online application.

Immunization Requirements

Yale University requires all students who enroll at Yale to provide proof of immunizations. You will not be permitted to enroll in classes until all the forms are submitted and the immunization requirements are met. Please see our immunization requirements for information and instructions for admitted students.

International Students

Please visit the application page for international students for further information and additional requirements for international students.
