Alert: Important Update
The Harvard College Admissions, Griffin Financial Aid, and Student Employment Office is excited that all students of Harvard College have returned to campus this fall! However, the Delta variant of the coronavirus continues to spread nationally and locally. While Harvard health officials have deemed it safe for staff and visitors to be on campus, the office has decided out of an abundance of caution to keep its operations and events virtual until at least January, 2022.
In addition, the office has made the difficult decision to suspend its in-person information sessions and tours throughout the fall, as well as close the Visitor Center to the public. Virtual options will remain available, and staff will continue to respond to inquiries via email and phone.
Our staff have successfully supported students and applicants remotely since the pandemic began, and we know that they will continue to do so, regardless of their office location.
