Connect with Yale through live online events
The Yale Admissions Office will be hosting online virtual events throughout summer 2020. Preregistration for all events is required.
Please note: Yale does not track event registrations or contact with our admissions staff for the purposes of evaluating applications.
Virtual Information Sessions
Virtual information sessions are co-hosted by a Yale admissions officer and current Yale student. These 45-60 minute online presentations cover academic programs, residential life, affordability, and admissions. Participants will not share their video or audio in the session but will have the option to submit questions in advance.
Virtual Student Forums
Virtual student forums are informal, non-evaluative Q&A sessions with current Yale students and no admissions officers or parents. Participants will not share their video or audio in the session but may submit questions via typed Q&A. Current Yale students will answer live on screen.
Virtual Events with Multiple Colleges
Yale is a member of several consortia that offer prospective students and families the option to learn about multiple colleges in one shared session. These 60-90 minutes sessions will showcase each school and cover the basics of selective college admissions and need-based financial aid.
