Harvard admits outstanding students of every nationality, income level, and background. Harvard has 12 degree-granting schools (for example: Harvard College, Harvard Business School, Harvard School of Public Health) and each school has its own application and admissions process, as well as its own forms of financial aid (grants, loans, and other forms of financial assistance) that can help reduce the cost of a Harvard education for many students.

Links on the left provide more information about applying to Harvard College for an undergraduate degree (sometimes known as a “bachelor’s” degree or “first” degree), to one of Harvard’s graduate or professional schools for a master’s or doctoral degree, or to some of Harvard’s other, non-degree programs.
