Cross registrants who wish to enroll in HBS Doctoral courses from Harvard University must use the Harvard University Cross Registration system to submit an online petition to cross register.
If your petition is approved in the Harvard University Cross Registration system, you will receive a message from the HBS Doctoral Programs Office (docreg+hbs.edu) with information on how to access the HBS Canvas site. Canvas is the learning management system used to disseminate the course syllabus and materials. Please allow 2 business days for this email to arrive. Upon arrival, you must follow the steps outlined in this email within 3 days. Please note that the access for this Canvas site is different than the FAS Canvas site.
Cross registrants who wish to enroll in a doctoral course as an auditor, are required to complete the process outlined above and then email Docreg@hbs.edu to confirm your auditor status.
Please note that cross registrants must notify both their home school’s Registrar and the HBS Doctoral Programs Office in the event of any change of status (e.g. dropping a course).
