GCWS seminars: How to Apply

Our seminars offer MIT graduate credit for students enrolled at participating institutions. Cross-registration and credit arrangements vary by institution. Students should consult with the Consortium staff and their academic advisors about registration. Full participation in the seminar is expected of all students, regardless of credit status.


Each GCWS seminar is limited to 20. Graduate students at participating institutions are eligible to apply. Doctoral students receive priority; masters students and advanced undergraduates may be admitted if space permits and require an email or statement of support by their advisor.  Auditors will only be admitted with the special permission of all of the faculty for the course.

2018-2019 Application Deadlines

Fall application deadline: August 20th, 2018

Students apply for GCWS seminars using the online application. All applications will be reviewed after the posted deadline. Students will be notified within one week of the deadline if they have been accepted into the course.
