Connect with Yale through live online events
The Yale Admissions Office will be hosting online virtual events throughout the fall of 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.
Multicultural Open House
Celebrate diversity and inclusion at Yale. Experience Yale’s cultural centers, student groups, academic opportunities, and resource centers, through panels, performances, and showcases. Watch videos from two weeks of live online events held in September and October 2020.
Virtual Information Sessions
Virtual information sessions are co-hosted by a Yale admissions officer and current Yale student. These 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.
A special session for U.S. military veterans and service members will be held Sunday November 8 at 7:00pm.
A special session about the Eli Whitney Students Program for nontraditional applicants will be held Sunday November 15 at 7:00pm.
Virtual Student Forums

Virtual STEM Student Forums
Virtual STEM student forums are informal, non-evaluative Q&A sessions with current Yale STEM majors. They are an opportunity to learn about research opportunities and the experience of being a STEM student within a liberal arts curriculum. 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.
