Newly admitted degree students who enroll in Summer II courses must also enroll in Summer I courses. Students taking Summer II courses will need to complete their Summer II enrollment by the add/drop/change deadline for Summer I. Returning degree students are not required to enroll in both Summer I and Summer II courses, however, returning students only enrolling in Summer II courses must complete their Summer II enrollment by the Summer I add/drop/change deadline.

Students completing the MPH-65 Program are not eligible to enroll in summer courses. Cross-registration and auditing are not permitted during the summer.

For information about applying to a summer degree or non-degree program, interested individuals should visit the Admissions webpage.  Continuing degree-seeking students who are part of a degree program for which summer enrollment is optional must indicate their plans to enroll in Summer Session courses by completing the pre-enrollment eform which is available to students in my.havard in the spring.

Students who withdraw from a summer program may receive some or all of their tuition refunded as per the Student Withdrawal Refund Policy posted on the Registrar’s Office website.
