Credit, Evaluations, and Transcripts

Certification and Academic Credit

Each successful Career Discovery participant receives a certificate from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and a written evaluation from his or her instructor. Although the GSD cannot offer undergraduate academic credit for Career Discovery, some colleges and universities will award academic credit for a student’s participation in our program.

Requesting a Copy of Your Evaluation

A copy of the written evaluation is sent to the permanent address of every participant following the conclusion of the program.
