A registered regular student who wishes to receive credit for work done at another college must:
If the college is sending an electronic transcript via email the address for the MIT Registrar's Office is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the transcript is in a language other than English, a translation must be provided to the MIT Registrar's Office. This can be done by a licensed translator or the student may translate it and have a faculty member in the MIT Foreign Languages and Literatures department sign it to certify it as a true translation.
The student should consult the Transfer Credit Examiner before registering at another college to ensure the subject is suitable for transfer credit and to check if a minimum grade is required.
The examiner may award credit for a particular MIT subject or, if there is no equivalent subject, may award elective credit.
A subject used to fulfill a requirement for a Bachelor's or higher degree awarded at another institution will not be accepted for credit at MIT.
Transfer credit will appear on the student's academic record with a grade of S. This grade is not used in computing the student's term or cumulative rating (GPA) but the credit will count toward Institute requirements.
Note about HASS credit: Generally, subjects taken outside of MIT are eligible for HASS elective credit only, with the HASS Transfer Credit Examiner’s approval. HASS Distribution transfer credit is usually not an option.
Please refer to the HASS Requirement website for a full description of the eight-subject HASS requirement.
