Summer School

Students eligible for need-based scholarship assistance who wish to accelerate the completion of their degree requirements through taking courses at the Harvard Summer School will receive consideration for loan assistance that will be forgiven once they actually graduate on an accelerated schedule. In addition, students whose attendance at Summer School is mandated by the Administrative Board may be eligible for scholarship aid to help defray Summer School costs. Loan requests for Harvard Summer School from students not accelerating their graduation will be considered on an individual basis by the Committee on Financial Aid with careful consideration of reasonable cumulative debt limits. Students choosing to attend Summer School are cautioned that the Committee will not waive their summer savings expectation. Funding for summer study abroad is available through the Office of International Programs.
