Course ratings, instructor reviews, accomplishment badges, planning, tracking, and other tools to help guide students through their HES journey.

The Degree Tracker is glad to provide the Harvard Extension School Student Forum (ESF) to help foster a nurturing environment. This forum for was born in 2015 to create better Harvard Extension School friendships, networking, and information to contribute to a better overall HES experience. Extension students formerly congregated at forums such as philfac and extensionstudent. This website has no affiliation with either the philfac or extensionstudent websites. It has been created and run by 100% completely different leadership. For the extension student who wants a bigger taste of what life with other Harvard Extension students is like, combining the Degree Tracker and the extension student forum can foster that sense of community that others have on campus. Another advantage of participating in an online community over the Harvard campus is that extension students can develop permanent relationships with other extension students that being on a physical campus might not necessarily allow, since online students are great at staying in touch online.

What would you like to see in a forum?

We'd be glad to hear your feedback. It's no piece of cake to graduate with your Bachelor of Liberal Arts or Master of Liberal Arts in a timely fashion, but your Bachelor's or Master's degree plan will only benefit from making use of the Degree Tracker and this exclusive forum for Harvard's marvelous students.


Hello all,

The first graduation email went out recently, and I found I am only receiving two tickets to commencement.

As I live with three family members who have supported (and put up with) :) me while attaining my degree, I really need one extra ticket.

If someone has one extra ticket for commencement, please message me!

    I too would like 1 extra ticket for the commencement ceremony!

    As ALMs only get 2 tickets, I have my elderly parents attending who speak limited English. It worries me for my parents to have to navigate it themselves so it would be wonderful if I can have my sister take care of them during commencement.

    FYI - alums can request tickets here: https://alumni.harvard.edu/annualmeeting/attend

    Thanks in advanced!
  • I too would like 1 extra ticket for the Graduate Diploma Awarding Ceremony. I received my degree in November 2016 and will be participating in the 2017 commencement ceremony this May.

    Is there any chance that someone has an extra ticket?

    Thanks in advanced!

    No offering of gifts or errands allowed, please. Just make your case for why you'd like an extra ticket. Thanks!
