Admitted Student Resources

Welcome to MIT! We are excited that you are about to join the MIT community.

To accept, decline, or defer your admission offer, please follow instructions from your department offered when you receive an offer of admission. More than half of MIT’s graduate programs require applicants to respond via the Application Status page in the application system; if you see a Reply To Offer form on your Status Page, please respond there.

Other graduate programs prefer that you complete the MIT Graduate Admissions Reply Form (linked below) or a separate reply form. If you must complete a reply form outside of the  application system, please follow directions from your intended department to submit your form.

For incoming students

To help you navigate your way to Cambridge, we have organized essential tasks and information in two places: 

  1. a checklist of to-do items in your Atlas App!  Please download the latest version of the Atlas application on mobile or desktop to access your onboarding tile.  You can find the latest version by visiting For any questions please contact the graduate administrator for your department.
  2. brief introductions to must-know campus information in the Canvas module “Grad Student Orientation”

To access Canvas and Atlas, you’ll need to set up your MIT Kerberos email address.

Important notice regarding final transcripts

We advise all students to contact their department for next steps as they prepare to arrive on campus for the Fall 2024 semester, including submission of the final transcript for Spring 2024. We respect decisions regarding the adoption of Pass/No Record (or Credit/No Credit or Pass/Fail) and other grading options during the unprecedented period of COVID-19 disruptions, whether those decisions were made by institutions or by individual students. 

A full list of programs and department contact information is listed online. For all other admissions questions or concerns, please contact Graduate Admissions at or 617-324-6730.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

Graduate Orientation

Graduate orientation events take place for several weeks in late August and early September. Each year, events are posted to the Graduate Student Orientation website.
