We invite interested prospective undergraduate students and prospective graduate students to apply for admission.


All prospective undergraduate students apply and are admitted to Harvard College. Students do not need to declare their intended concentration until the sophomore year.

In collaboration with the Harvard College Admissions Office, SEAS offers a separate tour dedicated to undergraduate programs in engineering and applied sciences.

In addition each spring, admitted students will be contacted about opportunities to attend open houses and informational events (on campus and online) organized the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

All prospective students and parents should work with the Harvard College Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
