Online Advising Folder

Beginning August 15, your Online Advising Folder will become available. Your folder brings together information and testing results that will help you and your advisor choose subjects and plan your first year.

Your Folder will also provide the name and e-mail address of your advisor, your reported scores and any MIT credit or placement granted from: Advanced Placement (AP) examinations, International exams (e.g. GCE A-Level, International Baccalaureate, etc.), and any evaluated transfer credit, and if applicable, your Advising Seminar assignment or Terrascope/Mission 2026 acceptance status.

The folder also displays placement exam recommendations from the First-Year Essay Evaluation (FEE), the Math Diagnostic for Physics Placement, and MIT Advanced Standing Examinations.

Accessing Your Folder

  • Check back August 15, for the link to access your folder.
  • Access to your personal academic and financial records is limited to you and MIT officials who have a legitimate educational interest (for more information see MIT’s Student Information Policy). Given this policy, Folder access requires MIT Touchstone authentication via MIT Kerberos identity or MIT web certificates. Be sure to also register for MIT Duo two-factor authentication for Touchstone.
  • Be sure to check your Folder to confirm that we have your scores before you register for classes.
  • If information is missing, please follow the instructions provided on your Folder for having scores reported (e.g. if any AP scores are missing, you will find a direct link to the College Board website).
