COVID-19 Update 4/7: Harvard College is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community.

  • Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19, we unfortunately must delay the Fall Clean-Up 2020 application.  This page will be updated as soon as more information is available.
  • The Fall Clean-Up application will follow the timeline of Harvard College's Pre-Orientation application.  Please refer to the Harvard College Dean of Students Office website for the latest information about the Pre-Orientation application and timeline.
  • If you have already submitted an FCU application, we will contact you as soon as more information is available.

We appreciate your interest in Fall Clean-Up and thank you for your patience during this time.
