Dates and Deadlines

The Academic Regulations section of the Yale College Programs of Study contains most of the rules governing the requirements and options in the curriculum, including a number of important deadlines and dates. Many of these deadlines and dates are summarized in a calendar — the Yale College Calendar with Pertinent Deadlines — at the beginning of the YCPS.

There are deadlines, for example, for withdrawing from a course, converting from Credit/D/Fail to a letter grade, and applying for a leave of absence. These deadlines are strictly enforced at Yale.

Your residential college dean and academic adviser will remind you of upcoming deadlines, but each student is responsible him or herself for meeting all Yale College deadlines.
