Graduate Policies and Procedures

Graduate Policies & Procedures (GPP) sets forth policies and procedures that apply to MIT graduate students.

This manual addresses registration and degrees; financial assistance; and roles and responsibilities of graduate students, faculty members, and structures at the departmental and institutional levels. We urge graduate officers and graduate administrators to become familiar with these policies and procedures.

These policies and procedures constitute a living document and are subject to change with oversight by the Committee on Graduate Programs. Major changes are communicated to department administration and to graduate students.
