The application for the upcoming 2016 - 2017 academic year is now closed. The application will reopen in August for the 2017-2018 academic year and will be available at http://www.yale.edu/graduateschool/admissions/application.html. After selecting the BBS Program on the application, please select the Track (called a "concentration" on the online application) which best matches your research interests; your application will be reviewed by that Track's admissions committee.
Please visit http://bbs.yale.edu/apply/faq.aspx and http://gsas.yale.edu/admissions/frequently-asked-questions for answers to commonly asked questions. For unanswered questions, please email:
1. firstname.lastname@example.org for general questions about applying to BBS.
2. http://gsas.yale.edu/admissions/contact for specific questions about the online application itself. Please make sure to place an "#" at the beginning of the subject field of your message to signal that you have a question related to the online application.
The non-refundable application fee is $100. Credit card (Visa or MasterCard) payment from within the online application is the only method of payment accepted. Fee waivers may be granted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents only. Please consult the online application to learn about the requirements for requesting a waiver and to access the waiver form.
