Admissions Open House

The School of Art does not offer a schedule of regular campus tours and admission information sessions. Instead, there is an annual Open House event in November introducing the School to prospective students, at which representative members of the faculty and admission team will discuss the programs and Yale’s application process. Current students will present examples of their work as well as a guided tour of the studio and production facilities. Applicants are encouraged to register for and attend this briefing. The date for the next annual Open House will be announced online, and those planning to attend should register online at

Please note that when Open House events are permitted to take place in-person, prospective students and applicants should not bring examples of their work to this event. Personalized portfolio advisement is not provided, and individual interviews are not offered until the phase of the admission cycle where finalists have passed the Preliminary Selection Jury.
