1. Complete the pre-registration steps.

If you haven’t already, log into your MyDCE student account and complete pre-registration. You’ll find a link in the MyDCE dashboard. Confirm your information, and you’re ready to register!

2. Add courses to your cart & register.

3. Claim your HarvardKey.

After you register, you’ll receive an email about claiming your HarvardKey, which gives you access to University services and course websites.

Coming to campus this spring for class? You’ll use your HarvardKey to submit documentation of COVID-19 vaccination — due within 7 days of registering.

5. Visit your course website.

Before classes start, check out the syllabus and preview assignments. You can find a quick link to your course site by logging into Canvas.

6. Shop for your new school supplies!

It’s time to pick up those back-to-school items: textbooks, notepads, highlighters — maybe a new Harvard backpack!
