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 SIS (Student Information Systems). Direct any questions about your schedule to your school's Registrar.
Graduate School of Arts & Science students: Confirmation of approval will be sent to your school's Registrar. You must also officially register for SOM courses through your DGS. Please see your department registrar to add an approved SOM course to your schedule.
Yale College students: Once you have received approval from the SOM Registrar, you are responsible for having the Yale College form "Request to Elect a Graduate or Professional School Course" signed by the instructor and then bringing it to the SOM Registrar's Office. Once the Registrar has signed this form, you are responsible for submitting it to your Dean's Office.
Units of course credit 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.
