Degree Program Admissions
Learn how to apply to our undergraduate, graduate, and joint degree programs.
Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Admissions
We believe the most important predictor of successful program participation and completion is your current ability to perform at the honors level at Harvard.
Therefore, you start by enrolling in field-specific admission courses that also fulfill graduation requirements. Demonstrating your academic distinction in these initial courses at Harvard is the hallmark of our admissions process.
During the term in which you expect to complete your final admissions course, you submit an application to the program.
Joint Undergraduate and Graduate Management Program Admissions
Unlike our other degree programs, the joint undergraduate and graduate management degree program has a competitive admissions process. Before taking courses toward the degree, you submit an application and supplemental materials. Offers of admission are extended only to a select group of the most qualified applicants who then begin taking courses at a later date and as a cohort.
