Throughout the summer, you may have questions regarding policies and services, such as the ones below. Feel free to call Academic Services at (617) 495-0977 with questions.

Become familiar with all policies that affect you at Summer School by reading Student Responsibilities and Regulations and Compliance.


Many courses have final exams during the last week of Summer School. In online courses with final exams, instructors may give an online exam or a timed and proctored exam. To learn more about exam policies, see Exams. Check your course website or syllabus for exam details. 


Grades are assigned to students who register in courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Grades for study abroad programs are generally available one week after the program’s official end dates. Learn more about grades.

Transfer credit and accreditation

Many institutions accept transfer credit from Harvard Summer School, which is fully accredited. Learn about accreditation and transfer credit.

Transcripts and enrollment verification

You may request a transcript online or submit a transcript request form to Academic Services, and you may also seek verification of your enrollment. See Transcripts and Enrollment Verification.
