Grading

Subjects at MIT are either letter-graded (A/B/C/D/F) or graded P/D/F (Pass/D/F). You may choose to have a letter grade converted according to Wellesley's credit/non-credit system. Check with the Wellesley Registrar for the deadline to elect an MIT subject credit/non.

When reporting grades, plus and minus modifiers are used at MIT for internal purposes only. They do not appear on MIT transcripts and are not used in the calculation of student's grade point averages. As they form no part of the MIT grading system for external purposes, plus and minus grade modifiers are not reported to the Wellesley Registrar's Office.

If you have any questions about cross-registration at MIT, please contact the MIT Registrar’s Office.
