Multiple Applications

Last Updated

When considering applying to more than one degree program, remember that you may only submit a total of three applications to the Harvard Kenneth C. Griffin Graduate School of Arts and Sciences during your academic career. Please note that applications to programs affiliated with the Harvard Integrated Life Sciences count toward this limit. 

To One Degree Program 

Harvard Griffin GSAS will not accept multiple applications to the same degree program in a single year, even if each application notes a different area of study or a different degree (see exceptions below). If multiple applications are submitted, the earliest submitted application will be reviewed and subsequent applications will be withdrawn. Application fees are not refundable. 

Exceptions 

Applying to two subject areas in the Division of Medical Sciences: You may submit two applications to the Division of Medical Sciences noting a different area of study in each application. Each application must be unique, containing a separate statement of purpose, transcripts, recommendations, and test scores as required.


Applying to both a PhD and a master’s degree within Engineering and Applied Sciences: You may submit two applications to Engineering and Applied Sciences if one is for a PhD degree and one for a master’s (ME or SM) degree. Each application must be unique, containing a separate statement of purpose, transcripts, recommendations, and test scores as required.

To Several Degree Programs 

Harvard Griffin GSAS will accept up to three applications to different programs in a single year. Each application must be unique, containing a separate statement of purpose, transcripts, recommendations, and test scores; each application also requires a separate application fee. Please note that each submitted application counts toward the lifetime maximum of three applications per person.
