For Information on How to Apply and Admissions

The GSAS Office of Admissions and Financial Aid is open Monday through Friday, 9 am-5 pm, EST.  Applicants checking on the status of their application must call 617-496-6100 between 2 pm and 5 pm EST. Admissions does not accept faxed material. 

  • Students seeking the Master in Design Engineering (MDE) apply through the Graduate School of Design.    
  • ​Students seeking the MS/MBA: Engineering Sciences program, offered jointly with Harvard Business School (HBS), apply through HBS.

We often receive inquiries from students who want to know whether to apply to the program. We cannot predict outcomes without reviewing the completed application. We cannot make a full assessment just from seeing just an applicant's vita, resume, or transcript, as all components of the application are important.
