A note regarding COVID-19

In recent years, the GSD has had to act quickly to implement contingency scenarios in order to protect the health and safety of our community while ensuring the continuity of our teaching and research mission. The GSD continues to retain the discretion to adjust its mode of teaching as it deems necessary in extraordinary circumstances, including by making recourse to online instruction and implementing compulsory testing and tracing programs as required conditions for accessing the Harvard campus or Harvard facilities.

Student Activity Fee
The student activity fee supports the GSD Student Forum and student organization activities.

Health Fees
The health services and health insurance fees are charged to all enrolled students. See the Harvard University Health Services website for more information about the health fees and for the option to waive health insurance if you have your own coverage.
