Visit a Class
While you’re visiting campus, you are welcome to attend classes. Many prospective students find that it’s a great way to get a feel for the intellectual excitement of being a Yale student.
Academic Term Courses
Use the link below to search for classes that interest you. Class descriptions on the Online Course Information site include class day, time, and location. Please see the list of building abbreviations in the Yale College Programs of Study (a.k.a. the "Blue Book") to find the location of your selected class.
Visitors and prospective students may attend large lecture courses. If you’d like to attend a smaller seminar class, please either email the professor beforehand or arrive at least five minutes early to ask if you may sit in. It’s important, of course, to be mindful of classroom procedures and decorum. If you’d like to speak to a professor, please wait until the lecture is over and the enrolled students have asked their questions.
If classes are not in session during your visit, please visit Open Yale Courses where you can try out a Yale class online at anytime.
Summer Session Courses
Visitors and prospective students may also arrange to visit summer classes. Search for courses that interest you on the Yale Summer Session website. Please email either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org at least three days in advance to request to visit the course; we cannot grant same-day requests. If your request is approved, you will receive email confirmation from Summer Session staff.
