When you check in at the Student Center, you will receive your MIT ID and your personal copy of the Transfer Orientation schedule and the Hitchhikers Guide to Orientation, which will provide you with details of the week's events and activities.

If you are an international student, you are also required to attend International Orientation and must be in touch with the International Students' Office, 617-253-3795.
