unfortunately its been brought to my attention lately that Yale is the only college in the nation which NEVER accepts transfer credits via transcripts from other universities. Would Yale allow people to test out of classes or would they accept letters of recommendation allowing you to skip classes such as Comparative Economic Systems? I'm hoping they atleast give the opportunity to test out.
Ive taken some classes at local Universities through a program for high school kids, which is why i'm interested. It doesn't matter too much for me, but it would always be nice.

yale accepts transfer credits to my knowledge, at least when you apply as a transfer student

I believe you are a high school student from your second paragraph. Right? This is probably why. As Yale accepts college credits from students who have already attended a college.
You may want to email freshman admissions and just ask. They are very quick at responding. I'm pretty sure it depends on the course you took.

Yea, no transfer credits for freshmen, but transfer for transfer colleges students. But placement does exist, and you can earn "acceleration credits" if you take more difficult courses and graduate in three years (if you don't, then you lose the acceleration credits). Yale does this so that students aren't taking less than the normal courseload if they choose to graduate in 4 years.

Are you sure Yale is the only college that doesn't accept college credit earned in high school? I didn't realize it was routine to grant credit for courses taken in high school.

not high school courses, courses at other universities.

Yeah, I know what you meant. Courses taken at other universities while in high school. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Yale probably isn't the only college, but I know for sure that MIT does grant college-during-high-school credit.

Well, some other colleges don't usually take transfer credits but sometimes make exceptions for certain types of classes, as I found out. Yale NEVER lets credits transfer, regardless of what type of class. Fortunately they sometimes let people test out, as I found out from them when I talked with them yesterday.
Thanks for the help.
