Program Description:

Yale Year or Term Abroad Petition for a Program Not on Yale's Designated List

Yale Study Abroad 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. 

As we cannot guarantee that your petition will be granted, we strongly recommend that you list a second-choice or third-choice program from the designated list as a back-up within your petition application (question #13). Do not complete a separate Credit for Year or Term Abroad application. 

Petition Process

Petitioning to study abroad through a program not on Yale's designated list is a 2-pronged process, which may be completed simultaneously:

  • Petition for Yale credit and approval: To petition to earn study abroad transfer 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 transfer credit.
  • Apply for admission into 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.

The YTA petition period is open from:

  • Spring 2021 term abroad: September 1, 2020 - October 15, 2020
  • Fall 2021 or Full Year 2021-2022 term(s) abroad: Opening Date TBD; Deadline: April 1, 2021
