Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Admissions

Because Harvard Extension School is an open-enrollment institution, prioritizing access, equity, and transparency, admission to its degree programs strongly aligns with these values.

You become eligible for admission based largely on your performance in up to three requisite Harvard Extension degree courses, depending on your field, that you must complete with distinction.

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.
