The Institute for Society and Genetics will be processing two types of forms: (1) pre-HBS requirements/ 195CE/196/199 petition form and (2) upper division elective substitution requests.
Pre-HBS major Requirement: This option should be selected by students looking to substitute a course in our Social Theory Courses category. Transfer students may select this option as well regarding transfer credit received at a community college that may apply or cover a pre-HBS major requirement not already noted on the Degree Audit Report System (DARS). Note that petitions are not guaranteed approval.
195CE/196/199 Requirement: This option should be selected by students looking to have a 195CE/196/199 course from another department count towards the 4.0 units of Soc Gen 195CE/196/199 requirement. Note that petitions are not guaranteed approval.

Upper Division Elective Substitution
Effective Summer 2022, the department will be issuing a moratorium on petitions for upper division elective substitutions. This means that the 6 required upper division electives (2 of which have to be Soc Gen) have to come from this List of Approved HBS Upper Division Electives.
The courses in red do not automatically show on DARS. If you have already completed one of these courses for a letter grade and with at least a C-, please fill out the request form below. These requests will be processed every Friday at 4 PM. If you submit after the Friday cutoff, please wait until the following Friday to have the changes reflected on your DARS.
