New Degree Student Information

Welcome new students!

We in the Registrar’s Office at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health are looking forward to your arrival at the school. We want to make certain that the start of the academic year goes as smoothly as possible. To that end, we have compiled some important information regarding enrollment into classes, billing, orientation, and student health services.

We encourage you to look carefully at the information found here. These pages will be updated between now and when you arrive, so please do check them periodically for any important updates.  Additionally, please make sure you review all of the information contained on the Admitted Students Website.

Orientation & Check-in

Orientation Day is your in-person introduction to the HSPH campus and your program. Check-in is the process during orientation where you confirm you have completed your pre-arrival requirements and receive your student ID card. Please read all the below sections carefully, as they will simplify the check-in process for you. We regret that the Registrar’s Office is unable to accommodate requests for early check-in. If you have any questions or concerns regarding check-in, we encourage you to call the Registrar’s Office at (617) 432-1032.

Additional information about Orientation can be found on the Orientation Website.
