Resources for Non-SOM and EMBA Students

Welcome to the Yale SOM site for Non SOM and EMBA Students

Monday, January 8, 2024: The enrollment request form will be available. You can "request to visit" a course in order to view the Canvas site starting January 2. You must change your status torequest to enroll" if you want to to enroll in the course. Please be aware you will remain a "visitor" on Canvas until you are officially approved and enrolled in the course.

Note: Courses that are wait listed will be approved the week the class begins. 

The course directory can be found here.

Reminder

  1. If you do not change your status from visitor to request to enroll our office will not know you’re interested in enrolling in the course. Visitors are purged from all canvas sites a few weeks after the start of classes.
  2. You are responsible for understanding the rules of each Yale SOM class that you are visiting. 

Please read below for more helpful information

Non-SOM Students:

Non-SOM students should still request to enroll using the enrollment request form. Once approved, you then need to contact your registrar to change your status to audit.  You must have instructor permission to audit and attendance is required.

Current Students’ Spouse/Partners, Employees, Fellows, Alumni (MGT courses only):

Yale affiliates (current students' spouses or partners/employees/fellows) may audit two Yale SOM elective courses per academic semester and Yale SOM alumni may audit one Yale SOM elective course per academic semester with instructor approval at no cost. Auditors must be able to attend the course in-person on the Yale School of Management campus. The course directory can be found here. If instructor approval is granted, complete the Canvas Access Request Form.

  1. Select "Yale SOM Canvas Access/Course Enrollment Request"
  2. Create a profile which includes your student ID number and your YUPI. Please note that errors in your profile will DELAY or HALT processing
  3. Once your profile is created, at your next login, you will be required to provide your Net ID. This will allow access to your profile.
  4. Next, you can select the courses that you would like to visit.
  5. IMPORTANT: When you are interested in enrolling, the next step is to request to change your status from visitor to request to enrollment.
  6. After the Registrar reviews your request, your status will update in your online profile. You will NOT receive an email from us.
  7. If a course is full, you will be wait listed.  We won't approve the enrollment until the first week of class when we know if there are open seats.

* PLEASE ALLOW 24 HRS FOR CANVAS TO UPDATE*

  • Canvas access will not enroll you in a course, nor does it imply that your enrollment request is approved.
  • Your Non-SOM profile page is where you must login and check the status of your request. The SOM Registrar's Office will send the approved request to your Registrar's Office.
  • Read carefully and adhere to all policies listed on the Course Enrollment Request form.
  • Note that all SOM courses have enrollment limits (separate from the number of actual seats in the classroom).
  • Professor approval is required to take SOM courses. You should always attend the first course, as attendance in the first class is mandatory in SOM courses.   
  • Registration will be reviewed and approved by the SOM Registrar. 

Professional School Students: 

  • Confirmation of approval will be sent to your school's Registrar, who is responsible for adding the course to your schedule. Check your schedule on The Yale Hub.
  • Direct any questions about your schedule to your school's Registrar. 
  • If you decide to no longer enroll in a course that was “enrollment approved” check with your school's registrar on submitting a drop form.

Yale College Students:

Once approved by SOM, the appropriate credit value (either .5 or 1 credit) will be added.
  • If you have any questions regarding unit conversion or the form please contact your school’s Registrar's office. 

Units: of course credits listed on the Yale SOM course page are for SOM students only. Questions about the credit you will receive for a Yale SOM course should be directed to your school's Registrar.
