Evaluation & Certificate

Certificate and Academic Credit

Each successful Design Discovery participant receives a written evaluation from his or her instructor and a certificate from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Although the GSD cannot offer undergraduate academic credit for Design 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 along with a copy of the alumni list is sent to the permanent address of every participant following the conclusion of the program.

Although we cannot provide an official transcript of your work in the program, we can send a letter explaining the nature of the program and a copy of your evaluation. If you would like to request this letter and/or a copy of your evaluation, please complete the form below, specifying the number of copies required and the address(es) to which they should be sent.


If form is not functioning, please send the request via email to discovery@gsd.harvard.edu.
