FAQ For New Students Arriving in Spring 2021

Updated November 11, 2020

Planning for Spring 2021

On July 24th DHS/ICE released Clarifying Questions which will apply to the Spring 2021 semester until we have further information from DHS. 

Given the many different programs within Yale, specific questions about enrollment options for the spring semester are best answered by directly communicating with your school. 

Please know that both Yale and OISS are committed to supporting you through this difficult period and ensuring that you are able to participate in your academic program this spring, should you choose to do so.
