Admissions & Financial Aid

The application deadline for fall 2019 has passed. Please check back in the fall for the application for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Yale Divinity School educates the scholars, ministers, and leaders of the future.  Students from a full spectrum of Christian denominations and faiths attend YDS to begin a lifetime of ministry, scholarship, and service to church and world. 

YDS fulfills a critical role preparing leaders at a time of dramatic shifts in the global theological landscape. The student body represents a wide range of cultures, ethnicities, and faith communities from around the world, taught by faculty eager to accept the educational challenges of an increasingly globalized environment. Faith and intellect meet in our daily ecumenical worship services in Marquand Chapel which reflect the great variety of theological and worship traditions represented here.

We invite you to learn more about us, explore the application instructions and requirements, and schedule a visit to our campus.

YDS Admissions Officers are on the road constantly! Check our schedule to find out if we are in your area.

YDS students take advantage of the full resources of Yale University and our extraordinary library system. Many students take courses across Yale and benefit from the cultural and social life of a world-class university.
