All Yale undergraduate students are enrolled in Yale College - a liberal arts program with more than 80 majors. There are no specific application requirements for students intending to major in any specific area. A list of majors and academic departments is available at https://admissions.yale.edu/majors-and-academic-programs.
All Yale undergraduate students are assigned to one of fourteen residential colleges - small communities where students eat, sleep, study, and socialize. Freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus and most students live on campus for four years. More information is available at https://admissions.yale.edu/residential-colleges
The Undergraduate Admissions Office does not manage the admissions process for any of Yale’s graduate programs. For information about applying to graduate programs, visit http://yale.edu/admissions/index.html. Five year joint Master’s & Bachelor’s Degree programs are available with Yale College and the Yale School of Music, the Yale School of Public Health, and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Students apply to these programs only after enrolling in Yale College for two or more years.
Campus tours are available 7 days a week at either the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or the Yale Visitor Center. For more information visit https://admissions.yale.edu/visit-and-connect. Yale does not track campus visits or demonstrated interest for the purposes of application evaluation. Visiting will not increase a student’s chances of admission. For campus visitors who are unable to attend a tour, self-guided audio tour app is available for Android and IOS phones. Search “Yale Tour” in the app store to download.
Yale Admissions Officers travel around the world giving public information sessions for prospective students and their families. For a list of upcoming events visit https://apps.admissions.yale.edu/events.
