Harvard Extension Exploration Month

June 26–July 21, 2023

Prospective students joined Harvard Extension School for a month of virtual information sessions, exclusive video content, live chats, and office hours to help explore our offerings and prepare for the start of fall 2023 course registration on July 24. We designed this experience to accommodate the busy lives of our well-rounded students, allowing them to digest this information at their own pace.
