In preparation, we ask you to review the information below and take any appropriate action.

Authorize Delegates

In order for anyone other than yourself to make e-payments towards your student account, and to receive notifications, view information, and contact our office about the account, they must be set up as delegates. Log in to my.harvard and select Share My Information, to begin (Please note: You’ll need each delegate’s birth date and email address to complete the process).

Plan to Make Your Payment

Please review the accepted methods of payment in preparation for making your fall semester payment. You may also want to consider the option of enrolling in the monthly payment plan.

Set Up Direct Deposit for Student Account Refunds

Direct deposit is the recommended method for receiving student account refunds.

Harvard Student Health Insurance Waiver Deadline is January 31, 2020

All students are charged for student health insurance each year. If you are covered by your family insurance, you may be able to waive enrollment in the University plan.

Information about the Harvard University Student Health Insurance Plan (HUSHP), including criteria for waiving enrollment, is available on the HUHS website. Please note that if a waiver is approved, the $1,850.00 charge for student health insurance will either be offset by a waiver credit or not appear, at all, on the student account.

Tuition Insurance

The GradGuard Tuition Protection Plan, available through Allianz Global Assistance, offers a smart and affordable way to protect your college investment in the event of a medical withdrawal. To learn more and/or enroll in the plan, please visit: http://www.GradGuard.com/Tuition/Harvard.
