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: 

  1. Review the petition process on the Study Abroad website
  2. Meet with a study abroad adviser
Only after completing these steps should you begin the petition process as outlined below.

Note: If you are applying to a program that is listed on the Study Abroad website, do not complete this petition. Instead, complete the Summer Abroad Credit for Designated (non-Yale) Programs application.

The Summer Abroad Credit petition period opens on December 15, 2016. All petitions for Summer Abroad Credit will be reviewed after the March 1st deadline and decisions are generally made within 2 weeks.

Petition Process

Petitioning to study abroad through a program not on Yale's designated list is a two-step process:

  • Petition for Yale credit and a​pproval: To petition to earn general Yale credit for a program not listed on Yale's designated list, click on the "Apply" button above and submit this petition by the appropriate deadline. Late petitions for study abroad credit cannot be accepted. You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you petition for Yale credit.
  • Apply for admission into the program/university: You must apply directly to the university or program abroad you 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. Program application deadlines may be earlier or later than Yale’s petition deadline.

International Summer Award (ISA): If you plan to use ISA funding for this program, you must be earning Yale credit. This means that you must complete both:

  • Yale Summer Abroad Petition for Credit by March 1st
  • International Summer Award application by May 1st

For more information, visit the ISA website.
