Non-Degree Transfer Credits

HSPH non-degree students that matriculate in a HSPH degree program may transfer and apply up to 20-credits towards a single degree program’s requirements under the following conditions:

  • Non-degree credits were completed at HSPH
  • Tuition has been paid in full
  • Credits were completed within five years of matriculating in a degree program
  • A signed Harvard Chan Non-Degree Transfer Credit Form has been submitted to the HSPH Registrar’s Office.

Students that matriculate in a degree program will be billed in each required term of enrollment until the degree program’s tuition requirement is met.

HSPH non-degree transfer credit tuition equivalencies are as follows:

  • 15-20 credits are equivalent to one full-time flat tuition assessment
  • 7.5-14.99 credits are equivalent to one part-time flat tuition assessment
  • Less than 7.5 credits do not carry a financial benefit

TAP recipients are assessed tuition based on their degree program’s per-credit rate in each required term of enrollment for the remaining credits in their degree program.

Students in the MPH-GEN program are not permitted to waive, substitute, or transfer credits into the program and no financial credit will be applied/granted towards the program’s tuition requirement.
