This section is devoted to application, preregistration, and placement procedures that take place before the fall term begins. Some programs have special application procedures with deadlines during the summer or in the fall before classes start. Others have placement examinations or a preregistration process that take place during Freshman Orientation. Details are available through the links below; additional information will be published in the Calendar for the Opening Days of College in June.
Before deciding to apply for a special academic program, read the material on this site about advising, Yale’s academic philosophy, and the distributional requirements. By considering matters in a broader context, you will be better prepared to decide whether applying for any of these programs makes good sense for you.
