Yale Course Search Resources

Yale Course Search is the official resource for viewing and searching course offerings at Yale College, the Graduate School for Arts and Sciences, and several professional schools. Students, faculty, staff, and the general public can use Yale Course Search to view basic information about course offerings. Persons with an active NetID can log into Yale Course Search and utilize additional features.

Effective with fall 2018 course offerings, Yale Course Search replaced Online Course Information (OCI) and Yale College Programs of Study (YCPS). 


Q: Is Yale Course Search where I register for courses?

A: Yale College students register for courses in Yale Course Search. Graduate students register for courses in Yale Hub.

Q: What are the recommended browsers to use for Yale Course Search?

A: Yale Course Search performs best using the most current versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. If you are using Internet Explorer, you must deselect the Compatibility View settings.

Q: I don’t see the syllabus button for the course I’m viewing. Why is that?

A: Syllabi are posted by instructors on Canvas. If a syllabus button is missing from a course, it means the instructor for the course has not posted a syllabus to the course’s Canvas site yet.

Q: Who can use Yale Course Search?

A: Limited course information is available to the general public through Yale Course Search. When logged in, additional information becomes available based on your role and your school.

Q: Where are the links to Course Demand Statistics and other resources?

A: These links are still available through Yale Course Search by scrolling to the bottom of the left-hand search panel.
