Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) embraces diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our community. We are committed to doing so by:


·      Treating all persons with dignity and respect;

·      Supporting student academic, emotional and community needs;

·      Providing and connecting students to appropriate services and resources;

·      Working collaboratively with faculty and staff to elevate the student experience.


The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) encompasses all aspects of the student experience and assists prospective students, current students and alumni with an array of services to meet their particular needs.  The office includes the areas of admissions, financial aid, registrar, orientation, commencement, student life, wellness and support programs, verification, boards and licensure requests, and academic and student services.  Additionally, OSA staff works with the Student Government Organization (SGO) and YSN student organizations to support their initiatives. We also offer programs and services to help students successfully transition to Yale; provide assistance as students navigate life/academic challenges as a graduate student; connect them to university resource centers and campus programs; partner students with other professional/graduate schools at Yale; and facilitate connections to organizations and opportunities in the New Haven community.


Jointly with our OSA and Peer Wellness Fellows, we organize an array of student life programs such as community check-ins, weekly yoga, fitness classes, clinical processing groups, financial wellness workshops, Care for the Caregiver programs, Interview days for prospective students and other recruitment programs, Wellness Week and other community and peer support programming.
