What are Virtual Office Hours?
Similar to how professors post times when students can stop by their offices and ask questions, the Harvard Extension School Admissions Office also reserves time for students to show up without an appointment and ask questions—but virtually!
Our Virtual Office Hours offer a casual space for students who are interested in pursuing a degree at HES to ask an admissions advisor questions and hear what other students wonder about. Advisors present a short overview of the program at the beginning of the hour, but it’s mainly a time for Q&A, with a focus on your Qs.
Because these office hours are online through Zoom, you participate where it’s convenient for you to connect. Join any time within the scheduled hour and stay as long as you'd like.
We look forward to chatting with you in an upcoming session!
Enthusiastic toddlers, attention-seeking pets, and sulking teens are expected to unexpectedly join you.
