How to Apply for Undergraduate Studies
In applying for admission, the enrollee must submit his application to the Harvard College Admissions Office for which no performance audition is required. The university adopts a need-blind policy, in which the Admissions Committee will accept the student based on merits and regardless of financial status. The admissions department then creates a financial aid package tailor-made to fit the ability of the student’s family to meet the costs of attendance.
Application requirements include (1) SAT or ACT test results,(2) Two SAT subject tests, (3) Secondary school report and Mid-year school report, (4) Two teacher-evaluations and (5) Harvard Supplements.
There are no rigid grade requirements, but the candidate's acceptability to a school curricula will be based on the student’s strength and ability to achieve in high levels. Nevertheless, based on the school’s admission records, most of the students who have been accepted for admission belonged to the top 10-15 percent of their graduating classes. For SAT and ACT results, the average scores of those who were accepted ranged from 600 to 800 for every SAT section.
Interviews are conducted when and where possible, even by phone or email, or by arranging to meet with a school alumna near the student-candidate’s community.
A $75 application fee is required but may be waived if it would cause financial hardship on the family of the applicant. The student will be instructed to coordinate with the guidance counselor when seeking assistance from the College Board to approve the waiver.
The 2010-2011 total costs of attendance amounts to $ 52,000 ++ and broken down as follows: Tuition – $34,976, Room and Board – $12,308; College Facilities Fees – $3,439; Estimated minimum budget for books, clothing, dues, recreation, and the like – $3,227. These quotes, however, are subject to change and can be expected to increase for 2011-2012.
