Tips from our advisors
- Read the website thoroughly. Most of your questions are answered here.
- Attend an information session.
- Use the degree course search when choosing courses.
- Apply in the semester you anticipate completing your third preadmission course. Being a degree candidate has its perks, including early registration and access to various resources. See the benefits of degree candidacy.
- Take advantage of resources such as the Career and Academic Resource Center, Writing Center, and libraries.
- Be aware of academic integrity policies and registration deadlines in the calendar. If you cannot complete a course, don’t just stop attending: formally withdraw from the class by the required deadline.
- Become part of the Harvard community. Join the student association and the Environmental Management Club, and attend campus events listed in the Harvard Gazette calendar.
