Admissions Overview for International Students

As stated on the School’s COVID-19 Updates webpage since early fall 2021, the on-campus requirement for Harvard Extension School degree programs is resetting to pre-COVID-19 conditions starting with the 2022 Harvard Summer School term, which is reflected in the video below.

More specifically, any student who is interested in, recently admitted to, or currently pursuing a degree program will be obliged to fulfill their remaining on-campus requirement credits in person and on-site beginning with the Harvard Summer School 2022 term and going forward. Live, online web-conference format courses will no longer be considered a substitute for this requirement.

Any credit you receive prior to Summer 2022 toward the on-campus requirement will continue to count toward your fulfillment of it.
