Admissions Information Sessions

All graduate admissions events will be held virtually in the Fall of 2021.    Harvard’s goal is to reduce the number of people on campus—including visitors—in order to slow the potential transmission of the virus and protect vulnerable populations from exposure. Therefore, all in-person graduate admissions events and tours of SEAS are discontinued until further notice.     Please attend a virtual event to learn more!
