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, including Harvard College, which awards eight (8) credits (or the equivalent of two courses).
Requesting a copy of your evaluation
Participants will receive a digital copy of the written evaluation 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.
