Welcome to Yale College!
We eagerly anticipate your arrival, and we look forward to the contributions you will make to our community.
This site will provide you with essential practical and academic information you will need as you prepare for your freshman year.
Important First Steps (to be completed April 3 or after):
There are a number of things you will need to do once you have matriculated.
- Retrieve and Activate your NetID (information will be sent via email on April 3 or after)
Information on how to retrieve and activate your NetID will be sent to you beginning April 3. Check your junk mail box if you do not receive the email. Those who matriculate after April 3 will receive an email two working days after they matriculate. Your NetID will give you access to Yale's network and its many online systems, including your Yale email account. Please note that your Yale NetID is different from your Eli Account ID. For the next couple of months, you will still need both accounts.
- Access your Yale EliApps email account
- Complete the Housing & Advising Form
The information you provide will be used to assign you to a residential college, to your suitemates, and to your freshman advisers. You will need your NetID and password to access this form online.
