For School Counselors

Connect Your Students with Harvard

The Admissions Committee considers counselors as invaluable colleagues and partners in the college selection and application process. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of your students.

Direct students to this site as they explore their college options in order to help them determine if Harvard is the right fit for their academic and extracurricular interests. Share information about our generous financial aid programs and affordability efforts, which make the cost of attending Harvard comparable to flagship state universities for 90 percent of American families. Help your students navigate the application process and meet application and financial aid deadlines

If you have specific questions, need additional information, or would like to speak with the Admissions Officer who covers your area, we hope you will contact us.
