First-Year Placement

The Department of Economics does not offer a placement exam but, rather, has a placement procedure based on admissions data and information you provided in the Math & Science Survey.

For additional information, please log into Canvas and visit the Course Placement 2021 (BIOL, CHEM, ECON, MATH, PHYS) Site. Click on the Post’Em tool, find the Economics Placement 2021 results and click its associated Actions menu to select “View”. You will find individual advice on which course is best for you to start your economics education at Yale.

Note: Placement exam results are expected in early August 2021.
