Following guidance from public authorities including the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the CDC, and in consultation with University leadership,
we have made the decision to cancel our on-site programming for Visitas, our admitted student weekend which had been scheduled for April 18th to the 20th. While we were looking forward to welcoming you to Harvard’s campus, our highest priority is your health and safety.
We are in the midst of assembling an exciting series of online events for a Virtual Visitas that will allow admitted students to explore all that Harvard has to offer. Rather than be confined to three days, these videos and sessions will be available throughout the month of April. Please refer to the Visitas page on the Admitted Students Website (for admitted students only) for the most up-to-date information about our schedule.
The University has also established a dedicated coronavirus website (harvard.edu/coronavirus) as a hub for all current guidance, and I recommend that you take a moment and review what has been posted there. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Admissions Office at 617-495-1551.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you to the Class of 2024.
