Applying Through Physics


Below is a step-by-step guide on how to apply to PEB through the Physics Department:

Getting to the Application:

At the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Application Portal, enter your PIN number and password. If you do not have a PIN number yet, click “Create Account,” and after you enter your information, you’ll receive a PIN. 

At the next screen, click “Edit Application.”
