Eligibility Criteria

1- Testing Information:

– The SAT or ACT with Writing, as well as two SAT Subject Tests. Students should not submit two Subject Tests in mathematics to meet this requirement. Candidates whose first language is not English should ordinarily not use a Subject Test in their first language to meet the two Subject Test requirements.

– In order for your application to be considered complete, the official test scores should be submitted directly to Harvard by the testing agency on your behalf. If they do not receive your official scores from the testing agency, they will be unable to make an admissions decision.

– While Harvard honors the College Board’s Score Choice program and allows you to submit tests taken as late as January for consideration, the students are advised to Regular Decision candidates to complete and submit at least one component of the required tests (SAT or ACT with Writing or two College Board Subject Tests) by the end of November. This will allow them to begin their evaluation process for those submitting applications by December 15.

– For Early Action candidates, the university hopes to receive all testing results by the end of October, but students are still eligible to apply using the November series. Those results will arrive in time for consideration without the need and expense of “rush reporting.”
