New Policy on counting Harvard Summer School Courses for Government Concentration Credit

September 9, 2016

This policy goes into effect for all primary and secondary concentrators, beginning with the summer of 2017.

Primary Concentrators in Government: Generally, students can count only one Harvard Summer School Government course, taught either on campus or abroad, towards their Government concentration requirements. If that course is not taught by a Harvard Government Department faculty member, the student must petition the Government DUS before the course is taken.
