Click the image above or this link to watch an excerpt from the Harvard Extension Info Session 2010.

I recount a handful of my first experiences at Harvard Extension, touching briefly on a few topics:
– Meeting with advisors
– Expository writing during summer school
– The writing center

Enjoy! And please feel free to post any questions in the feedback below.

Huge appreciation for Mihoko Hakata for capturing this video.

    Exactly how hard is it to get three B+ in Harvard Extension School classes?

    I’ve always been A student at high school, but I didnt apply for any college due to medical reasons..

    Im trying to take classes at HES next spring.. will i make it in as a undergraduate student??

    Im really scared that I might not make it in.. Should I just give it a try?? Is it really that hard?? will I get a second chance if I dont make it at first?

      Hi Narae, Thank you for writing!

      “will I get a second chance if I dont make it at first?” This is a good question for admission advisor Ann Wright: http://www.extension.harvard.edu/programs/undergrad/admission/advisor.jsp

      “Exactly how hard is it to get three B+ in Harvard Extension School classes?”
      The classes vary greatly in intensity; ask Ann Wright for some advice on which classes will take advantage of your strengths. Since you did well in high school, you already have a handle on what it takes to study and finish assignments on time, and these qualities are probably 90% of what it takes to get a B+ or higher.

      “Should I just give it a try?” YES! Go for it!

      See you on campus,
      Brandon
