  • Once admitted to a course, you will receive a grade unless you either drop the course or withdraw by filling out a form online or in person in the Yale Summer Session office.
  • Two courses per session is the maximum enrollment if you opt to take Yale courses for credit.

Residential Information for Visiting College Students

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. 

  • Visiting college students should submit a transcript of colleges/universities attended.
  • All first year students should submit a high school transcript in addition to their college transcript.

The online application enables applicants to upload an unofficial copy of their academic transcript. All academic transcripts 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.

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.
