Reporting Your Conversation

During Exploring Fields of Study, every time you attend a Fields of Study Session or visit office hours you are engaging in an Advising Conversation. Advising Conversations give you the chance to ask questions, learn more about particular concentrations, and think about which concentration(s) may be best suited to your interests. Every first-year student is required by Faculty legislation to have at least one Advising Conversation during Exploring Fields of Study, though we encourage you to have many.

Upon completion of the Advising Conversation report, the tool will remain active in your "To Do" list until April 15. This will allow you to complete reports for additional events.

How to Report Your Advising Conversation: 

To submit your report(s), go to the Student Home tab in my.harvard, and click on the Advising Conversation Report link in your To Do list and follow the instructions on the screens that follow. You should receive a confirmation email within 15 minutes of submitting your report. In the meantime, you can verify that your submission was successful by reviewing your report in the Documents tab in your my.harvard profile.
