Is it possible to upgrade from a certificate to "real Harvard," if you start the class in the late summer (i.e., are there any deadlines)?
This option gives you a Harvard Extension School transcript, hand-graded assignments, an actual grade, and course credit, among other things. It costs a chunk of change.
While there is a lot of talk about upgrading from Honors to Verified, I have not seen this question in my searches here or on Facebook addressed by Prof. Malan or anyone else. A thread on reddit may apply, but the user does not mention a transcript and other perks, only a certificate.
