Registration Information for Graduate Students

Graduate students may enroll directly into an open section of a Spanish language course.

To register, add the course section to your registration worksheet in Yale Course Search.

If the section is full, you may add yourself to the waitlist by following the instructions outlined here. The course will show in the Worksheet Contents: the hourglass icon means that you are on the waitlist for the course.

 You will receive an email when a seat becomes available in that section and will have 24 hours to claim your spot. See below on how to complete your registration once offered a spot.

Claiming your Spot

If you receive an email that a seat has become available, simply log into Yale Course Search and open your Registration Worksheet to claim your seat. You will see the waitlisted course’s hourglass icon change to a checkmark, which means that you are now registered for the course. Remember that you have 24 hours to claim your seat.
