Part 1: Biographical Information Form
To begin your application please submit the application fee online and e-mail your application to transferapp (at) mit (dot) edu. Please note that this email address should only be used to submit applications; all other questions or requests should be directed to mittransfer (at) mit (dot) edu.
If the application fee presents a hardship for you and your family, you may qualify for a fee waiver. To request a fee waiver, check the associated box in the Part 1 of the application, and ask your advisor, financial aid officer, or other school official to submit an official letter on your behalf.
Part 2: Essays, Activities & Tests Form
The required essays consist of four short-answer response questions (250 word limit). Remember that your essays are not a writing test. They’re the place in the application where we look for your voice - who you are, what drives you, what's important to you, what makes you tick. Be honest, be open, be real - connect with us. That's all that matters.
Please use our form, not a resume, to list your activities. There is only enough space in this section to list a few things, so please choose the activities that mean the most to you and tell us a bit about them. This will tell us more about you than any "laundry list" of everything you've ever done.
You should self-report your standardized test scores in Part 2 of your application, However, your scores must also be reported to us officially from the testing agency; scores you list on your application and scores appearing on your school transcript will not be considered official.
