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 program success is your current aptitude to do honors-level work at Harvard. This standard is the cornerstone of our admissions process.
To apply to our undergraduate and graduate degree programs, you begin the admissions process right away, taking three 4-credit courses to demonstrate your academic ability to succeed as a Harvard student. During the term in which you complete your third admissions course, you submit an application to the program.
Joint Undergraduate and Graduate Management Program Admissions
Because the joint undergraduate and graduate management degree program is demanding, the application process is highly selective. You submit an application and supplemental materials to be reviewed by the admissions committee, consisting of admissions staff, joint degree program administrators, and Harvard joint degree program instructors.
