Each year the Admissions Committee seeks to build a class with a range of interests, experience, and preparation. There is no single formula or profile for admission to HDS. Successful applicants come from a wide range of academic, professional, and cultural backgrounds. Although the admissions process at HDS is highly selective, each application is carefully reviewed by the Admissions Committee to evaluate the fit between the goals, academic record, and experience of the applicant and the resources available at HDS.
If you are planning to apply for Fall 2018 admission, please check our website in early September 2017 for the new online application. Meanwhile, the 2017 Diversity and Explorations Program application is now available.
