Below is a list of useful forms, many of which can be filled out online.

Course Enrollment and Grading
Students may petition the graduate school to change their registration status. More information about GSAS policies can be found on the Student Registration Status page.
Students may apply for leave of absence for medical, personal, or parental reasons.
For a medical or personal leave, students fill out the above change of status form, send it to the department graduate registrar and the DGS, who will forward it to the Graduate School.
For a medical leave, students should obtain a written recommendation from an appropriate Yale Health chief physician. For example, the website of the Yale Health Mental Health & Counseling services can be found here. Students should also agree with the DGS on a (short) academic writing assignment (10-12 pages) that they would turn in before they return from their medical leave.
For a parental leave, students should contact Associate Dean Allegra di Bonaventura (email@example.com) prior to the term of birth or adoption.
