Course Information for Yale College Students

You will select the courses you'd like to take in your 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 you are admitted to a course, you will receive grades unless you drop the course or withdraw by filling out a form online. If you need advice on whether YSS courses fulfill requirements for your Yale College degree, see your academic advisor. For advice on YSS course selection, please contact the Dean of Yale Summer Session.
