Since 2008, the Eli Whitney Students Program has offered non-traditional age students possessing exceptional academic potential, determination, and maturity the opportunity to pursue a degree at Yale College.Yale seeks applicants with strong academic backgrounds, work experience, and community involvement along with clear motivation for their proposed course of study.

Eli Whitney Students enroll on a full-or part-time basis and may choose to live on or off campus. They are not eligible to enroll in courses in the graduate and professional schools; those interested in enrolling in such courses should apply directly to those schools.
