Undergraduate Special Student Program


Take classes and study at MIT

The Undergraduate Special Student Program is geared toward currently enrolled students interested in taking classes at MIT that are not offered at their home university.  This non-degree status allows students to customize their course of study with options for part-time or full-time enrollment and the ability to stay for one or two academic terms.  Upon completion of the program students can request an academic transcript to take back to their home university.

Qualified applicants must:

  • Be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate degree program elsewhere
  • Have completed one year of full-time study prior to the planned enrollment date
  • Demonstrate their ability to succeed in MIT’s rigorous classes

Applicants who have already received an undergraduate degree and are either working professionals or currently enrolled graduate students may consider applying to the Advanced Study Program
