The First Year at MIT
The UAAP serves as the first-year office and supports a variety of programs that help enrich academic life at MIT, including advising, Orientation, UROP, and more. As such, we have created the First Year at MIT web suite with detailed sites for first-year students, their advisors, and associate advisors as well as prospective and transfer students. These sites provide academic information, advice, and resources to help support the critical first year at MIT.
