Undergraduate Special Students

The Institute can accept a limited number of undergraduates who wish to undertake special studies and who are not degree candidates at MIT, but who have had at least one year of study at another college or university. Special Students enjoy most of the privileges of the regular student but are not eligible for financial assistance from MIT. Special students are eligible to apply for on campus housing via the waitlist, they have lower priority but readily receive offers if space is available. Students wishing to apply for special student status should visit the Special Student website.
