Welcome to YDS’ Fall Open House. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to gain an insider’s perspective of Yale Divinity School!

Fall Open House for Prospective Students

Each year the Admissions Office hosts a Fall Open House for prospective students on the first Thursday in November. Open House provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with the entire YDS community. This full day event includes faculty talks, student and almuni panels, admissions and financial aid presentations, information about our degree programs, visits to class, an opportunity to attend worship in Marquand Chapel, and a delightful closing reception. The best way to learn about Yale Divinity School is to visit campus and experience the vibrancy of our community in person. If you are able, we encourage you to join us for Open House. We look forward to meeting you in November!
