The Committee on Admissions and Degrees recommends that you complete an English as a Second Language (ESL) course before arriving at the School. The ESL course should meet at least two times per week, should be no fewer than six weeks in duration and must be completed before Saturday, August 6, 2016. You will need to provide the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Admissions Office with official documentation from the institution offering the ESL course by June 1, 2016, verifying your enrollment and outlining the details of the course (i.e., meeting times and duration). You will also need to submit official documentation (again, from the institution offering the course) confirming your successful completion of the course by August 6, 2016.
