Auditing

If you are a student interested in auditing a course at HGSE you will need to contact the faculty member or faculty assistant for the course and request permission.  Audited courses may not be taken for credit, and may not be converted into credit for use toward a degree at a future point. Once your request is approved, the faculty member or faculty assistant will grant you "guest" access to the Canvas course platform.

If you are a student outside of Harvard University, you must create a Harvard XID account by using your official school e-mail address. Once your request is approved, the faculty member or faculty assistant will grant you "guest" access to the Canvas course platform.
