Notes

Credit

Per Yale's credit transfer policy, students can only earn a maximum of two transfer credits for summer study abroad.  This means that, even though you will be taking 3 courses on the SIT Iceland Program, our office can only transfer credit for two of them. The Renewable Energy, Technology, and Resource Economics Seminar and the Renewable Energy, Technology, and Resource Economics Project are eligible for transfer credit. The Icelandic language course is not eligible.

SIT Admissions

SIT accepts students on a rolling basis. In the past, this SIT program has filled early, so we recommend students apply to SIT well before their application deadline.
