All current MIT subjects are published in the Online Subject Listing and Schedule, which is released about one week in advance of pre-registration for the Fall and Spring terms. (The Fall schedule is released during the last week of April; the Spring schedule is released during the last week of November.) An interactive tool called MIT Course Picker, which was developed by CSAIL and IS&T in consultation with the Registrar's Office, is available to help students plan their schedules.
Because this listing is updated throughout the term, it may differ from what appears in the print edition of the MIT Bulletin, which is issued by the Reference Publications Office each August. The Summer Session Catalog contains complete information about summer admission, registration, and subject offerings. Syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, exams, and videos for many MIT subjects are available through MIT's Open CourseWare (OCW) website. Students cannot earn academic credit through OCW, but no registration is required to use the materials available on that site.
The MIT Class Schedule is a list of all meeting times of classes offered for a specific term. The list is arranged by department and includes subject numbers, sections (lectures, recitations, labs), locations, and meeting times.
Consult the MIT Bulletin (Course Catalogue) for detailed information about General Institute Requirements for undergraduate students, general graduate degree requirements, and specific degree programs and requirements. You will find contact information and links to departmental websites in the descriptions of degree programs.
All classes and exams are conducted in accordance with regulations adopted by the Faculty, which are commonly known as term regulations. Undergraduate students will also find this information in the Academic Guide, which has been prepared by the Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) and the Office of Faculty Support (OFS).
