Procedures to Cross-Register

There is no course shopping period at Harvard Law School.  To cross-register for a CAP course students should follow the instructions on the Non-HLS Student Cross-Registration webpage and attend the first class. (Tufts and MIT students: please read these instructions carefully; the registration portals you use may differ.)

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 confirmation 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 Service Desk:

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.

Procedures to Audit

Prospective auditors must first email Crisanne Hazen ( to express their interest in auditing. They should then complete their Request to Audit Form, arrange with Margo Strucker ( to sign the form, and drop off the form at the HLS Registrar’s Office (WCC Suite 4007). Auditors should come to the first class, but will be officially admitted to the course only after February 1. The Registrar’s Office processes all enrolled students (typically during the second week of the term). Admitted auditors will then gain access to the Canvas course page and the Reading Packets.


Cross registration deadlines for the Host and Home School may differ.  All petitioners must be in compliance with the HLS Cross-Registration Calendar.
