Yale Physics welcomes applications for our PhD graduate program with matriculation in 2022, beginning August 15th, 2021. Yale Physics will not be accepting the General GRE and Physics GRE scores for applications received by the December 15, 2021 submission deadline. We recognize the severe disruption caused by COVID-19, specifically the significant challenges associated with test-taking, either in person or online. We also recognize that the hardship of taking GREs fall unequally on individual students, and the option to submit exam results unfairly advantages some students over others.
Please do not submit GRE scores or mention them anywhere in your application portfolio, as we have elected not to include them in our holistic review of applications.
We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for all in the face of very challenging times and advance research, teaching, and scholarship amid the ongoing global pandemic and beyond.
