Does MIT have any age limits?

We don’t have any age limits or restrictions.

If you’ve been away from high school for a while, we would expect to see the results of your standardized tests, Secondary School Report, evaluations from teachers/employers and other supportive materials that would assist us in getting to know you. Obviously, the greater the distance from your high school studies, the more creative you’ll have to be in submitting supportive documentation.

We recommend that nontraditional applicants take some college courses at a community college or in a non-degree program prior to applying to brush up on their classroom experience and get some fresh teacher evaluations. Evaluations or recommendations from your employers, mentors, and training situations can provide useful information, especially if teacher evaluations are difficult to obtain.
