Student Registration in ‚Äča Study Abroad Course

Yale Summer Session courses always begin on a Monday. Students in 8-week language courses that begin with a New Haven component will fill out an online confirmation form. Although students are registered for class by the time they go abroad, YSS requires instructors to send an e-mail message to YSS indicating that all students have arrived safely and attended the first day of class abroad. This should be done immediately.

When the YSS course does not have a New Haven component, students will not be registered until the first day of class in the host site. YSS requires instructors to send an e-mail message to YSS indicating that all students have arrived safely and come to the first day of class abroad. YSS will provide the instructor with a list of the students who are enrolled in the course.

Grading Policies

Instructors are required to return grade reports to YSS no later than one week after the last day of class and should do so using the online grading system. Credit/D/Fail has now been implemented for  summer courses. If the instructor is unable to submit grades online, YSS will provide him/her with a grade sheet. The instructor may initially e-mail the grade report to ava.suntoke@yale.edu at YSS. The instructor MUST send the original, hard copy of the grade report with his/her signature to YSS.

Please return the original to the YSS office upon your return to New Haven, or mail the original grade report to Yale Summer Session (P.O. Box 208355, New Haven, CT 06520-8355) if you will not be returning to Yale for the fall term.

Course Evaluations

Students will be required to fill out two evaluations. One will be a Yale College course evaluation which is completed online. YSS will send students a reminder e-mail notice to fill out a course evaluation. YSS will notify faculty via e-mail when  evaluations are ready for viewing. Students will be asked by the Center for International and Professional Experience to evaluate their study abroad program. Some may have their own “study abroad” evaluation as well.
