Visit the registration page to start your application. Interested applicants will also need to submit:
A current résumé
A statement of intent explaining why you are applying to this program, how your experience has prepared you to enter this program, and how it will benefit you professionally
Both documents can be uploaded as either a PDF or word document. Professional achievement and organizational responsibility are the main criteria for admission. There are no previous formal education requirements for admission. Acceptance is subject to the approval of Yale faculty members and AIGA leaders. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received, and you can expect to be notified within 1-2 weeks from submitting a completed application.
There are no refunds for cancellations, since AIGA has no flexibility in the number of attendees we must provide to justify Yale’s investment in the curriculum development. Substitutions are subject to approval according to the selection criteria for the program. The program is subject to cancellation or change. Liability is limited to funds remitted for program registration and sponsorship fees. Faculty is subject to change without prior notice. If there are fewer spaces than qualified candidates, some applicants may be deferred until the following year’s program.
Yale is committed to a policy against discrimination based upon age, color, handicap or disability, ethnic or national origin, race, religion, religious creed, gender (including discrimination taking the form of sexual harassment), marital, parental or veteran status, sexual orientation, or the prejudice of clients. All employers using the school’s placement services are required to abide by this policy.
