Update from YSE Admissions on COVID-19 (Updated July 8)

The YSE admissions office will remain closed until further notice for all on-campus visitation. We have  worked to develop a robust selection of online resources to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the School, as well as opportunities to connect with faculty and engage with current students and alumni. These activities have been structured so that admitted students can learn more about the curriculum, the student experience, and co-curricular activities, as well as career search assistance and employment outcomes. While the office will not be available to host on-campus visits or in-office appointments, the office will be operating fully virtually and invite you to sign-up for a virtual campus visit or appointment with a staff member.

We look forward to connecting with you!
