and returning students who have not completed
Phase One through transfer credit should take the
Evaluation during their first term at the
Students who do not pass the Evaluation have
until the end of the eighth week of their third
term at MIT to submit Phase One Papers.
For example, a student who transferred into MIT
as a sophomore in the Fall of 1996 would have
until Monday, November 3, 1997 to submit a Phase
One paper. If a transfer student does not submit
a paper by that date, or if the paper he or she
submits is not judged Acceptable after a maximum
of two revisions, he or she must complete Phase
One by enrolling in an Approved Phase One
Writing Subject in the following term.
Students can satisfy Phase One through a
subject taken at another institution only if that
class receives transfer credit as a designated
Phase One subject. Consequently, transfer
students seeking to complete Phase One through a
subject taken at another institution should
contact the Program
in Writing and Humanistic Studies to
determine if the subject is equivalent to an
approved Phase One Writing Subject. However, if
the subject was for students whose first language
is not English, a student should contact the English
as a Second Language Program.
