  • Kafka and Monty Python
  • The Syrian Refugee Crisis

Splash at Yale is a program organized and run by student-volunteers.

Step-By-Step Student Registration Guide:

1. Phase 1: The Program Lottery: This period is closed! In this phase, students can sign up for the program lottery (P1) by clicking the link at the top of this page, filling out the forms, and then creating a lottery ticket. Students should receive confirmation of their entrance into the lottery and will find out if they have been randomly selected for a spot in our program a couple of days after the end of P1. This phase closed on Wednesday March 23th, 11:59 PM EST. Note: students should not attempt to enter the lottery multiple times -- duplicate submissions will be deleted.

2. Phase 2: The Class Lottery: This period is closed! All students who have been randomly admitted into the program will rank the classes they want to take. They will be able to look through the courses, star the ones they’re interested in, and rank 4 classes they would like to take for each time block. They can change this at any time before Phase 2 ends. At the end of this period, students will find out which classes they got into. This period will closed on 4/1 11:59 PM EST.

3. Phase 3: First-Come-First-Serve: This period is closed! After class assignments are made at the end of P2, some students may have empty slots in their schedules, as some popular classes may not have enough room to accommodate all students. Any student who does not have a full schedule will have an opportunity to fill any empty time slots with classes that still have available space. Instructions for this phase will be emailed at the close of Phase 2.
 This phase closed on 4/9 11:59 PM EST.

Waivers are sent to students who are accepted through Phase 1, the program lottery. This waiver needs to be completed before the day of the program. Note, we cannot accept verbal consent over the phone for a waiver. The waiver must be submitted before the program. Additionally, some classes may require special waivers for students to participate.

"No waiver, no program"
