SPLIT OPTION

Please see your program coordinator for up-to-date information. Information will be supplied by the Registrar in your penultimate semester.

 

Students may spread their final semester of courses over two terms enrolled at part-time status. One semester’s tuition is charged for the two terms. The normal full-time tuition rate covers up to 24 units (Fall + Spring terms combined). Health service and insurance fees remain the same as when enrolled full-time; however, only full-time students are allowed to reside in Harvard’s residence halls.

In order to split, you must submit a Split Option Form to the Registrar's Office in advance of the:

6th semester for MArch I + MArch I AP students

The deadline for submitting the form is set by the Registrar's Office. Students will receive notification of the deadline and the latest policies regarding the split option from the registrar in December.

For MArch I and MArch I AP students, "Thesis Prep" is delayed from the 6th semester to the beginning of your 7th semester split. The typical split registration is:

Fall Term - 8 units of electives
Spring Term - Thesis (12 units)

*Please note that general elective units may be taken in either semester but students who receive financial aid must register in a minimum of 8 units in the Fall semester.

International Students

International students are required in accord with federal student visa regulations to maintain full-time student status in all but their final semester. International students who split must enroll in 16 units in their next to last semester.

For MArch I and MArch I AP international students, the split registration is: MArch I and MArch I AP international students enroll in a total of 28 units which is four units above the normal full-time tuition rates. This results in a 1/4 more tuition during the split option year.

For MArch I and MArch I AP international students, the split registration is:

Fall Term - 16 units of electives
Spring Term - Thesis (12 units)
