2 classroom credits
*Students interested in Art of Social Change (Spring 2018) should follow the Procedures to Cross-Register, listed below.

Procedures to Cross-Register:

There is no course shopping period at Harvard Law School.  Students interested in cross-registering for a CAP course should: (1) complete their Harvard University online cross-registration petition, and (2) attend the first class.

Cross-registration requests will be approved by course instructors in the order in which they are received.  Once approved—and if there is space available—the HLS Registrar’s Office will admit you and send you an email that you have been enrolled.  You are not enrolled in the course until you receive email notification from the HLS Registrar.

All enrolled students need access to the online Canvas course page.  After receiving a notice that you are enrolled, it will take several days for you to be added to Canvas.  Important course announcements and assignments will be posted on the Canvas course page, so make sure you can access it.  If you received an email from the HLS Registrar that you are enrolled in the course and you are still having problems, contact the ITS Student Help Desk (617-495-9576), located in the basement of WCC RM B020.

Students enrolled in a course can drop the course by following the add/drop procedures at their Home School.

Keep in mind that the only grading option for Harvard Law School courses is ordinal/letter.  The HLS grading system is H, P, LP and F (Honors, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail).  Contact your Home School’s Registrar’s Office for information about how this course and the grade will appear on your official transcript.


As per Harvard University policy, cross registration deadlines for the Host and Home School may differ. Cross Registration Petition Forms must be completed by the earlier of the two deadlines.
