Information for Prospective Students

Yale Physics welcomes applications this fall for matriculation in 2021.  In doing so, we re-affirm our commitment to teaching and learning in the face of very challenging and changing times.  We are committed to a diverse and inclusive environment, as well as advancing teaching and scholarship in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic. As such, we have made important updates to our 2021 application requirements, most notably we are not requiring the GREs for this year. Please see our full Graduate Admissions Statement here.
