The First Year at MIT

Freshman Advising

At MIT every undergraduate has an advisor. As an upperclassman you will be assigned an advisor in your major, but during your first year your advisor may be a faculty or staff member from any department. In addition, most advisors team up with an associate advisor, an upperclassman who brings an undergraduate's perspective to the advising process.

This section provides information to help you as you work with your academic advisor during your first-year.
