Yale students total. Over half are graduate & professional students from 11 different schools, including the largest - GSAS.
Submitted applications (complete or incomplete) are made available to your program of study for review by the program’s admissions committee after the deadline for your program.
Once that review is completed, your program notifies the Graduate School (GSAS) which applications are being recommended for admission.
Applications of those being recommended for admission are then reviewed by the Graduate School academic deans who make the final decision to admit.
Please fill out the “Reply to Offer of Admission” form in your Application Status Portal.

Unfortunately, no. As a matter of policy, we do not return application materials to applicants.
We may retain your application year to year, but you will nevertheless need to submit a new application each time, including all required materials and the application fee.
Applicants who have been denied admission three times by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, whether by one or more departments, are not eligible to apply again. If a fourth application is submitted, it will not be considered and the application fee will not be refunded.
Departments/Programs make admission recommendations to the GSAS deans, who make the final decisions concerning admitted applicants.
Decisions not to admit an applicant are almost always made at the program level.
Requests for deferred admission will be considered only after an offer of admission has been accepted.
