It is easy to become lost in the vast quantities of college information available for students as they approach the end of high school. This program will help students make an informed choice about Harvard College and help you determine if it is a good fit for you.
As the admissions officer who works with applicants from Brazil, Jim Pautz will give a presentation about life at Harvard and information on admissions and financial aid. He will be happy to answer questions about these topics as well. At Harvard College, lack of financial resources or need for financial aid are not impediments to admission, and foreign students have the same access to financial funding as U.S. citizens (including the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative, where parents with total annual incomes less than US$60,000 are expected to pay nothing.
