How do I apply as a Permanent Resident?

All students must complete Part 1 of the MIT application with their current citizenship status. In the MIT First Year admissions process, you are considered a U.S. citizen if you currently hold a United States Permanent Resident Card (Green Card).

Unfortunately, every year we receive applications from students in the process of waiting for their Green Cards. If there is a change in your citizen status during the application process, you may notify MIT and send a copy of your Green Card via fax (617.687.9184), or email and your status will be updated immediately, right up until decisions are announced mid-March.
