All applications go through Undergraduate Admissions at Yale College. Students declare their major by the end of their Sophomore/beginning of their Junior year. For specific application requirements see the Institution Profile, Section 5. Institution Admission Information.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

For those students whose native language is not English and who have not received at least two years of their secondary education in an English medium curriculum, Yale may require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Students may submit the IELTS in lieu of the TOEFL. Either the SAT I and two SAT II Subject Tests, or the ACT, is required, with only two exceptions. Students whose home countries (e.g. mainland China) do not have a testing center are, of course, exempt. In addition, students enrolled in A-level programs may use completed A-level results as a substitute for the SAT II Subject Tests on a one-for-one basis, provided official test results arrive at Yale by February. No other substitutions are acceptable. Apart from that, all requirements and fees are almost the same as for resident U.S. citizens. For further information, go to:

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Yale accepts a limited number of transfer students from other colleges and universities. In recent years, around 800 students a year have applied and only 18-35 have been accepted. Transfer students enter either the Sophomore or Junior year and must enroll at Yale for a minimum of two years (4 terms) in order to qualify for the B.A. or B.S. degree. The Admissions Committee places primary emphasis on college record, reasons for transfer, and recommendations from college faculty and administrators. The secondary school record, extracurricular interests, and work experience are also given weight. Personal interviews are not used in the evaluation of transfer candidates.
