Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Admissions

We believe the most valuable predictor of successful program participation and completion is the academic ability you can currently demonstrate in Harvard courses.

Therefore, you start by enrolling in one to three stipulated degree courses, depending on your field.

Earning academic distinction in these initial degree courses makes you eligible for admission.

How to apply to the degree programs

Premedical Postbaccalaureate Program

Unlike our degree programs, the postbaccalaureate premedical program has a traditional application process where you apply prior to completing courses at Harvard. Learn more about the Premedical Program.
