There is a historical agreement between Harvard and the Episcopal Divinity School (formerly the Episcopal Theological School). There is also one with Andover-Newton. These agreements are between Harvard University and are not to be confused with agreements between Harvard Divinity School and other schools in the Boston Theological Institute.

1. The students in each institution shall be allowed to take courses in the other without payment of fee for three years; and if at the end of that time it appears that such an arrangement involves an undue financial sacrifice on either side, a new and equitable arrangement in regard to the payment for such courses shall be made, but, in any event, the student shall not be required to pay a total amount greater than his tuition fee to one institution. This freedom from payment of fees shall be extended by the University to Andover Theological Seminary, also, in place of the present agreement, if that Seminary so desires.
2. The Episcopal Theological School shall raise its tuition fee to $150 a year, being the same as that now charged by the Harvard Divinity School and Andover Theological Seminary.
3. Students registered in the Episcopal Theological School, who have already obtained the degree of B.D. there or elsewhere, may obtain the higher degrees of Harvard University on complying with the terms required for such degrees. Such students shall register in the University, and their plans of study must be approved by the appropriate University authority at the beginning of their candidacy.
4. Each institution shall be at liberty to include in its catalogue a list of the courses in the other, and the students and professors in each shall have free use, without additional charge, of the libraries and museums of the other.
