Prospective student programs

Fall Preview Weekend Programs

MIT offers dedicated preview weekends for prospective applicants interested in graduate school. Programs offer exposure to the MIT campus and opportunities to interact with graduate students, staff, and faculty. Preview weekend programs require an application and acceptance in order to attend.


ACCESS is a weekend of educational and informative events that will introduce talented sophomores, juniors and seniors to the benefits of a graduate education in chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. The goal of ACCESS is not to prepare students for graduate school at MIT specifically, but rather to introduce them to the advantages of choosing a graduate career path at an institution that best meets each participant’s individual needs.

Please visit the MIT ACCESS Program website for further details.
