Next Steps

Orientation & Check-in

Orientation Day is your in-person introduction to the Harvard Chan School 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.

Please continue to check the Orientation Website for details regarding the format for Summer 2020 Orientation.
