Yes! Because all courses in Spring 2020 were graded SEM/UEM, the Department made an exception to review and consider petitions for SEM-graded courses following the same guidelines as all other semesters.
Concentrators can request credit for courses on the expedited non-departmental Advanced Course list by following the instructions outlined on the linked page. To petition an Advanced Course that does not appear on the expedited list, or to petition a course for a different requirement, please follow these instructions instead.
Reminder: petitioning a course does not guarantee approval! For questions, please contact the Undergraduate Office at email@example.com.
I received a score of 5 on the Psychology AP exam in Spring 2020. Can I request an exemption to the Introductory Course requirement?
Due to the altered nature of the curriculum and format of the exam, a score of 5 on the Spring 2020 Psychology AP exam cannot count towards the Introductory Course requirement. However, it can be used to meet the Introductory Course pre-requisite for Foundational and Advanced Courses in Psychology. The specific pre-requisites for all of our courses are listed in the my.harvard catalog entries. Please e-mail the UGO at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
