The following materials are required for Yale student applications:

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, or in person in the Yale Summer Session office.  If you need advice on course selection, please contact the Dean of Yale Summer Session.

Search courses by department and distributional requirements.

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

Residential Information for Yale College Students

You may choose to live in one of the Summer residential colleges while enrolled in Yale Summer Session. Your fellow Yale students serve as residential counselors and provide support and assistance.

Note: If you are admitted to Yale College as an incoming first-year student for the fall of 2020, you are not considered a pre-college student for housing purposes and you will be housed with other college students.

Yale Summer Ses​sion Financial Assistance

Yale Summer Session offers financial assistance to Yale College students on financial aid. You can receive financial assistance for half tuition on up to two course credits. If you have attended Summer Session or a Yale Summer Session Program Abroad, you can have the application fee waived. Contact our office for details.

If you are on financial aid during the academic year, you may also be eligible for Summer Pell Grants and for low interest loans to cover the remaining cost of summer session courses.  You’ll find more information at Yale Financial Aid.

If you are applying to a Yale Summer Session Program Abroad, review financial assistance eligibility on the Yale Study Abroad website under Need-based Funding.

Immunization Requirements

Yale University requires all students who enroll at Yale to provide proof of immunizations.  All Yale students must log into Yale's online Immunization portal to verify that their medical immunizations are up to date in the system.  Please visit our Required Immunizations page for instructions. You will not be permitted to enroll in classes until all the forms are submitted and the immunization requirements are met.

Summer Employment Opportunities

Yale College students may also apply to be a residential counselor during the summer. Residential counselors are given free room and board for the orientation period and the ten weeks of the program, plus a tuition reduction for the equivalent of one summer course credit. Join the summer staff (application deadline February 7, 2020).
