The deadline for US citizens and permanent residents is May 1; the deadline for international students is March 1. International students living outside the US are not permitted to apply for the summer session.The admission standards for the Summer Session are the same as those for the regular academic year. Please contact the Office of Admissions by email at or by phone at 617-253-3400 with any additional questions.


Current MIT students pre-register for the Summer Session through WebSIS at starting May 1.

Graduate students who are enrolled in a research degree program and who are taking only thesis or pre-thesis research subjects during the summer will have their registration approved by their department. All other students should contact their department to discuss subject selection. Once registration has been approved, it is the student's responsibility to complete the online registration process and submit subject selections to the Registrar's Office.

The student must acknowledge terms and conditions before submitting their registration. By acknowledging these terms, the student agrees to pay all charges on his or her student account when due and acknowledges that MIT may assess late charges or finance charges, suspend registration, withhold a degree, and charge collection costs if all charges are not paid.

Approved registration selections must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the end of the first week of the term, June 13 ($50 late fee). Once the advisor has approved the registration selections, all subsequent changes to the student's program require Add/Drop/Change forms approved by the advisor.

Students expecting to complete a degree in the Summer Session (awarded in September) should submit an online degree application through WebSIS by Friday, June 13 ($50 late fee).
