All students in the master’s programs must register for courses using the online registration system (the Yale Hub, within the registration period for the fall and spring terms. If a student withdraws from a course by midterm, then the transcript does not show that the student has been enrolled in the course. If a student withdraws from a course after midterm but before the first day of reading period (whether or not that particular course observes reading period), the transcript records the course and shows the designation “W” (Withdrew). International students should be aware that their visa status requires them to maintain 12 credits per term, with the exception of their last term at YSE. See the academic calendar for specific dates.

International students are required to complete a nonacademic registration at the Office of International Students and Scholars prior to their regular academic registration.
