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 download the MIT Graduate Admissions Reply Form and return it directly to your department.

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 dashboard
  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.

In case you miss one of the emails directing you to Canvas, the Graduate Student Orientation website includes an index of most-frequently-asked sections of the Canvas module that can send you to the right place. 

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 2023 semester, including submission of the final transcript for Spring 2023. 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 coordinated by the Graduate Student Council (GSC) and posted to the Graduate Student Orientation website.
