Course Registration

We hope you'll consider studying with us in 2017. Information about next summer's programs and courses will announced starting in October and continuing through January. Course registration opens in March.  

How to register for courses

Step 1: Browse courses and review registration requirements.

Before you register, search the course catalog to find courses that interest you. Learn about course prerequisites, placement tests, credit options, the English proficiency requirement, guidelines for international students, and enrollment policies. Take steps now to prepare and meet requirements that apply to you.

Step 2: Log in to online services.

In online services, you can create your student account, maintain your contact information, register for courses, make payments, and view your grades. Look for the “login” link at the top right of any summer webpage.

  • Returning students: Log in with your DCE ID number and DCE PIN or your HarvardKey.
  • New students: On the login page select “Get Started” in the New Student box. You will receive a DCE ID number and DCE PIN after entering the required information.

You register for courses online with a credit card payment of the $50 registration fee and the $200 Summer School deposit. The registration fee is nonrefundable. The deposit is applied toward your total Summer School charges and refundable according to the course drop and housing cancellation refund policies. ​

Step 3: Meet registration requirements and deadlines.

Most deadlines are noted in the academic calendars. You should watch for e-mails from the Summer School with additional information and updates.

Step 4: Pay all tuition and fees.

See Tuition, Fees, and Payment for details on payment options and policies.
