Advising Application Form

Select your advising preferences below and submit this form no later than June 15.  Before selecting your preferences, please be sure to consider how you plan to spend your time in your first-year, including HASS subjects and any discovery and exploration subjects you may wish to take this fall, and make sure that any seminars of interest will fit into your schedule and plan.

Please consult the First-Year Academics section of this website for more information on requirements, credit limits, and how to craft your schedule. You can use student-developed tools such as Firehose to lay out a draft schedule and CourseRoad to begin thinking about your whole first year and beyond. You can also consult official subject schedules and degree requirements maintained by the Registrar’s Office. 

You’ll have plenty of time to revisit your planned schedule with your Advisor and Associate Advisor in August, but for now, check out this advice from Auntie Matter.

Please be sure to supply your numeric MIT ID # here.
