The Harvard Kennedy School offers a small number of courses during a two week intensive winter term in January. Enrollment in January classes takes place in October and the process is the same as the fall and spring term.
January courses count as spring term courses for all purposes (i.e., use of points and number of classes enrolled) and will appear on a student’s official Harvard Kennedy School transcript in the spring semester. HKS students may not sign up for more than one January class during Registration Round I.
Cross-registration for non-HKS students begins on October 20.
Registration is through SPARKS. Any oversubscribed course will require bidding. The Office of the Registrar will let HKS students know if they need to bid on a course and how much it is oversubscribed.
The instructors will provide details about prerequisites and/or other requirements for consideration for their courses. With regard to MLD-230 (previously offered as STM-230) students must have taken either MLD-221 (previously offered as STM-221), or a Harvard Law School or MIT negotiation course as the prerequisite. MLD-230 and HLS’s 44100A (or 44100-21) Winter Negotiation Workshop may not be both taken for credit.
