Yale Year or Term Abroad Non-designated Program Petition
The Study Abroad Office will consider petitions for non-designated program approval on a case-by-case basis.
Non-designated refers to programs not listed in the CIPE database. If you are applying to a program listed in the CIPE database, please complete the Yale Year or Term Abroad application.
Please note: Before starting this petition, you must review the petition process on the Study Abroad website and meet with a Study Abroad Adviser. Only after completing these steps should you begin the petition process as outlined below.
Simultaneous Two-Step Petition Process
Application for Admission into Program/University: Students must apply directly to the university or program abroad they would like to attend. You can access the programs' applications directly from their websites. It is your responsibility to ensure all application materials are submitted to your desired program by the relevant deadline.
