  • Apply for Yale credit and approval: To apply to earn study abroad transfer credit for your participation in a YTA program, click on the "Apply" button above and submit this application for credit by the appropriate deadline. Late applications for study abroad credit cannot be accepted. You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you apply for Yale transfer credit.
  • Apply for admission into your intended YTA program: 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 application deadline.
