All MIT students register online. Students meet on or before Registration Day with their advisor (if an undergraduate student) or with their departmental registration officer (if a graduate student) to discuss subject selections for the term. After conferring, the academic advisor or registration officer approves the subject selections. The student is responsible for completing the registration process and submitting the digital form.

Any subsequent changes to the student's program must be approved by the advisor. Procedures for IAP, the January Independent Activities Period, are different since students have fewer restrictions on adding and dropping subjects.

MIT may withhold a student’s registration for a specified term due to outstanding obligations. It is the responsibility of the student to resolve the situation directly with the MIT office that placed the hold on registration.

Detailed registration instructions for each term are posted on this site. Deadlines and late fees are published in the Academic Calendar.

Students are expected to review their Status of Registration Report on WebSIS to make sure it accurately reflects their subject registration. They also are expected to maintain current address and emergency contact information online through WebSIS.
