Welcome to MIT, Class of 2024!  We are excited to welcome you to the Institute at Orientation!

Welcome to MIT, Class of 2024!


At this time the Institute has not made any decision regarding fall dates. Please refer to our COVID site for up-to-date information.  We will update our Dates and Deadlines once decisions have been made. Orientation is typically held at the end of August, immediately preceding the start of the Fall semester.

We are excited to welcome you to the Institute! During and leading up to Orientation, you will explore academic options, learn about MIT Residence Life and other student life programs, and meet your Orientation Leaders and new classmates. Orientation includes Pre-Orientation Programs (FPOPs) offered right before the official beginning of Orientation. You'll also register for your first semester of classes and participate in various special orientation events and programs designed to introduce you to life at MIT.

Please explore this site, as it contains information about what you'll need to be doing this summer.

The Orientation student schedule will be available via the mobile app, Guidebook. Please note: the full Orientation schedule will be available by August 1.​ 

Note: All dates for Advanced Standing Exams and Orientation (including parent information) are pending. We will update this page when those dates are confirmed.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Orientation Office at orientation-www@mit.edu or call 617-253-6772. We are available between 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. 

We look forward to meeting you soon!
