International students

International students contribute to the rich diversity of the MIT community. Of the approximately 11,000 students at MIT, roughly 3,600 are international students, hailing from over 110 different countries.


The ISO assists international students in maintaining their legal status in the United States, provides support for their dependents, and promotes interaction with and integration into the MIT community at large.
