Summer Abroad Petition for a Program Not on Yale's Designated List
The Study Abroad Office will consider petitions for a program not on Yale's designated list on a case-by-case basis. 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.
Petitioning to study abroad through a program not on Yale's designated list is a simultaneous two-step process:
Application for Admission into Program/University: Apply directly to the university or program abroad that you would like to attend. You can access that application and deadline information from the program's website. Please note that program application deadlines may be earlier or later than the application to apply for Yale credit.
Yale Petition for Credit: To petition to earn general Yale credit for your participation in a program not on Yale's designated list, click on the "Start Applying" button at the top of this page.
Summer Abroad Deadline: March 1st
Important: If you plan to use International Summer Award (ISA) funding for this program, you must be earning Yale credit. This means that you must complete both:
Summer Abroad Credit for Designated (non-Yale) Programs application by March 1st
International Summer Award application by May 1st
Review the Summer Abroad Credit for Designated (non-Yale) Programs website to learn more about the application process, advising hours, academic credit, and financial aid transfer.
