Admitted Students

HOW WILL I ACCESS THE ONLINE PROGRAM?

All admitted students will receive an email with instructions on how to join the sessions virtually. Students will need access to a phone, computer, or another device that connects to the internet to be able to log-in to the online platform to view the videos and engage in discussions.

HOW CAN I CHECK IF I HAVE ACCEPTED MY OFFER OF ADMISSION OR SUBMITTED THE REQUIRED FORMS?

Admitted students can view all requirements for accepting and confirming their offer of admission on their status portal.

what if i don’t have facebook or canvas?

Joining the 2022 YYAS Facebook group is not mandatory, but it is a great way to connect with other participants. Signing up is free and you can do so here. Information related to the Facebook group will be shared directly with participating students.

Canvas is also free and is needed to access program content and the online sessions. Detailed instructions on how to sign up will be sent directly to admitted students prior to the start of the program.

Do I have to attend all seven days of the online program?

Yes. While we understand that there might be circumstances that cause you to miss an online session or part of a live video, we expect registered students to join us for as much of the scheduled programming as possible to ensure the most impactful YYAS experience. Resources will be shared later on to those who are unable to join for valid reasons.

CAN I DEFER MY ADMISSION TO NEXT YEAR?

No. Unfortunately, due to the volume of interest each year as well as the Eligibility RequirementsYYAS is unable to accommodate any enrollment deferrals.

WHERE CAN I FIND A SCHEDULE FOR THE ONLINE PROGRAM?

A detailed schedule will be sent to all admitted students prior to the start of the program.
