In response to the pandemic, Yale has adopted a test-optional policy for first-year applicants in the 2020-2021 admissions cycle.

However, we understand that it may not be possible in some cases for teachers and counselors to meet these deadlines, and we will make reasonable allowances. This will not negatively impact an applicant’s chance of admission.
