Track and plan your Harvard Extension School ALM and ALB degrees or professional graduate certificate. Course ratings, instructor reviews, accomplishment badges, planning, tracking, and other tools to help guide students through their HES journey. TheDegreeTracker is proud to bring you this tool to use to track your degree at Harvard Extension School. If you are a student who has more courses than you can keep track of, and you would like to plan out your degree pathway carefully, then track and plan courses with the Degree Tracker to take control of your education. Including course reviews and course ratings, TheDegreeTracker has the potential to not only guide you through your degree, but to let you help other students who might be wondering about the HES courses that you've taken. 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.

    I'm hoping to get my kids and immediate family into the 'Degree Awarding Ceremony' for ALM (Management). I will need two (2) additional tickets for that, so if anyone has them to spare, I would be much obliged!

    Best regards,

    Hi all!

    I need one ticket for the degree award ceremony.

    I have one morning exercise ticket and six for the afternoon to swap.

    I need this ticket for my little sister who has helped me at every step of the way with my degree! She could really use the academic inspiration right now!

    I would be so so grateful for any help with this. I have been emailing, posting and contacting people for months (literally), with no luck.

    Hi everyone, I am looking for one extra ticket for both the morning and afternoon exercises. My husband, son (6) and step son (12) are all flying in with me. We just found out that my step son's mom can't keep him, so he has to come with us. I only received 2 tickets and right now the plan is for the 12 year old to stay at the bed and breakfast all day with my husband running back to check on him between events. He has autism (high functioning), so I am nervous about him being alone in a strange city.

  • Hi Everyone,

    I need an extra ticket to the undergraduate awarding ceremony. My mother is traveling thousands of miles to come, and I only have tickets for the morning and afternoon -- not for the diploma awarding ceremony.

    Hi all, I have one extra ticket for the morning, afternoon, and ALM degree ceremony for humanities in Kirkland if anyone can use them.
  • ALMSinghALMSingh Posts: 4
    Hi SSmith, thanks, could I request the morning and afternoon tickets from you, please. It will help get my family to see it.
  • I am looking for 2 tickets for the ALM Information technology degree commencement ceremony in Christ Church Cambridge, Zero Garden Street. I have the same situation as well - my mom is traveling from India ( who doesn't speak English) just for this event. My wife and 2 younger kids would love to be there. With 2 tickets provided by Harvard, there is no easy way to bring just 2 people from my family. Also, we all are flying from Phoenix, Arizona for the event. It would be a bummer to travel all the way and not attend the ceremony in person. I truly appreciate anyone considering to help us out. Thanks in advance.
