Harvard University aims to fulfill its promise of excellence in research and teaching by attracting and welcoming into the community individuals of exceptional talent.

The University does not make citizenship status a condition for admission to any of Harvard's Schools. With the admissions decision comes a commitment to every person who has been admitted, regardless of immigration status. As President Faust has recently noted, we are all Harvard.

This webpage is intended to provide information and resources for undocumented members of the Harvard University community, and for their families.

Each School oversees its own admissions process and qualified, interested undocumented applicants should be in touch with the admissions offices in the Schools they are interested in applying to.  Please see the Admissions tab for links to information about the Schools' admissions policies and procedures.

Please be in touch via email at undocumented@harvard.edu with comments, suggestions, or concerns.  You may also be in touch with Lars Madsen, Chief of Staff, at lars_madsen@harvard.edu or +1-617-496-9476.
