Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Committee on Undergraduate Educational Policy (EPC) announced updates to certain Handbook policies. Below are those updates.

July 15, 2020: International Student Study Away Fall 2020.

During academic year 2020-21 Harvard College international students may earn credit for work done at a local university in their country of residence. Institutions must be accredited and able to provide an official transcript or grade report upon completion of the term. All courses must adhere to a liberal arts and sciences curriculum and may not be pre-professional in nature. Earning credit for such study away will follow the same credit transfer policies as those applicable to study abroad.
