What We Do

The Office of Student Success aids students in their progress toward their degree as well as adherence to policies. The Student Success team upholds the Harvard Griffin GSAS and Harvard community standards and administers nonresident applications, organizes the MBTA Semester Pass program, onboards admitted international 

students, and organizes a robust suite of events, including Harvard Griffin GSAS Welcomes and the Diploma Awarding Ceremony. The team also partners with key University offices and resources such as the FAS Registrar, Harvard International Office, the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning, and more.
