Admissions Advising

Schedule an individual appointment with an admissions advisor or join other students in the advisor's virtual open office hours to learn more about our admissions process.

Appointments

An admissions advisor is available to help you determine if you possess sufficient work experience and/or transfer credits for admission consideration.

To make an appointment:

  • Login to online services
  • Select Degree Program Admissions/Admission Advising Appointment
  • Select the joint degree program from the list
  • Follow the prompts 

If you would like to discuss transfer credit eligibility or receive a transfer credit estimate via email without an appointment, send an email to admissions@extension.harvard.edu and attach an unofficial transcript of your previous college-level work. Be sure to include your appointment date and time if you have one or, if you don't, let us know you'd just like an estimate. Ordinarily, you can expect to receive an estimate within 10 business days.

Virtual Open Office Hours

Drop in and ask your admissions questions online during advisors' virtual open office hours. See upcoming dates and join. (General program information will not be presented, but you can learn more by viewing our Informational Videos, below.)

Informational Videos

Before attending open office hours or an appointment, we recommend you prepare by watching our series of short, informational videos. Learn the basics about Harvard Extension School, degree requirements, the application process, your benefits as a degree candidate, and international student information.
