As a student admitted to the Premedical Program, you have access to the following benefits.
We’ll advise you on course selection, evaluation of your application essay, and the application process (e.g., MCAT/DAT timing and acquiring letters of recommendation).
Registration, Tuition, & Financial Aid
You may register for classes during the priority registration period — before the general registration period opens for all students.
In addition, you will pay Harvard Extension School tuition rates for Harvard Summer School courses — a significant cost savings.
New Student Orientation
We host an orientation at the start of the program, offering presentations by clinicians from Harvard Medical School (HMS), core Harvard Extension faculty, and a medical school admissions officer, as well as interactive sessions with fellow students.
Premedical and predental students may pursue sponsorship, which includes a composite letter of recommendation and a personal assessment of your application materials.
Clinical and Research Opportunities
You may attend frequent clinician interactions to learn from experts in the field of healthcare.
In addition, you have the option to participate in research with a faculty member through our Faculty Aide Program.
You have access to Crimson Careers through the Mignone Center for Career Success, Faculty of Arts & Sciences, Harvard University to schedule career advising appointments and conduct job and internship searches, including for research opportunities.
Harvard University ID Card
You are eligible for a Harvard University photo ID card that grants you access to benefits like the Harvard libraries and Harvard museums. University-wide policy requires you to pick-up your ID card in person. Please visit the Announcements page on Campus Services’s website for pick-up locations and hours.
Your program benefits include access to Microsoft Office, OneDrive, and SharePoint. You can access these tools at office.com. Select “Sign in”, then “Sign-in options”, “Sign in to an organization”, and finally input “harvard.edu” as the organization domain. From there, you will be prompted for your HarvardKey credentials.
If your HarvardKey login address is a non-Harvard email address, you must use <NetID>@harvard.edu as your login address with your HarvardKey password. Don’t know your assigned NetID? Visit Find your NetID.
