Your Online Freshman Advising Folder
Your freshman folder URL will be made available at this location beginning Thursday, August 15.

- Evaluated transfer credit
The Advising Folder also includes results from the:
- Summer HASS-D lottery (if you entered it)
- Freshman Essay Evaluation (if you took it online)
- Math Diagnostic for Physics Placement
- MIT Advanced Standing Examinations
as well as
- the name and e-mail address of your freshman advisor
- Freshman Advising Seminar assignment (if any)
- Terrascope/ Mission 2017 acceptance status
Checking Your Online Freshman Advising Folder
Beginning Thursday, August 15, you will be able to access your online Freshman Advising Folder. On or soon after August 15, please check your online Advising Folder to confirm that we have your scores before you meet with your advisor for Fall Registration.
- Not all information will be in your Folder when it first goes live, so check back several times in August and September.
- If information is missing, please follow the instructions on your Advising Folder for having scores reported. For example, if your AP scores are not on your folder, you will find a direct link to the College Board website.
Accessing Your Folder
- The access URL and instructions for accessing your folder will be available on August 15. Your Folder is part of MIT's Student Information System. Access to your personal academic and financial records is limited to you and MIT officials who have a legitimate educational interest (for more information see MIT's Student Information Policy).
- Given this policy, access to your Folder requires authentication using MIT web certificates.
- In order to obtain an MIT web certificate, you must first create your MIT Kerberos identity (your MIT email username that you created via your MyMIT page).
