Arts & Sciences and M.I.T. offer courses for both graduate and undergraduate credit.  Undergraduate level courses will not be posted on your Harvard Chan School transcript.

The Business  and Law Schools grades do not convert into Harvard Chan School ordinal grades and therefore cannot be calculated into the G.P.A.. However, they will count toward Harvard Chan School ordinal credit requirements.
