Advising Right Now: Assisting Advisees with Choice of Major

Your advisees will need to declare a departmental major this spring. Specific deadlines and the course selection form will become available this spring, so please check back.

The Major Exploration section of the Class of 2020 site is an excellent resource for your advisees as well as for you. There is extensive information on majors and minors at MIT, including a timeline, department links, advice on making the decision, words of wisdom from upperclassmen, and details on Departmental Exploration (DEX) events.

The Undergraduate Administrator or Undergraduate Officer in a particular department is always the best resource for questions, concerns, or information.
