Advising Right Now: Assisting Advisees with Choice of Major

Your advisees will need to declare a departmental major this spring via the Course Selection Form by April 27. The Course Selection Form (a PDF document) will become available for download later 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.
