MITCommittee on Academic Performance

Progress Toward the Degree: Satisfactory Academic Progress

MIT expects you to achieve at least a satisfactory record each term. These minimum requirements have three components:

If you do not meet these standards in a term, your department and the CAP will review your record and take appropriate action. See End of Term Review for details of this process.

Note that some scholarship-granting agencies (e.g., US Federal Title IV financial aid, ROTC programs) have stricter minimum academic standards than those of MIT itself. If you have any questions about your academic standing and financial aid, consult your Financial Aid Officer in Student Financial Services.
