How do I apply to MIT through QuestBridge?

If you’re applying to MIT through QuestBridge College Match, simply complete and submit the QuestBridge Match application, as well as the MIT-specific requirements.

We ask that you create a MyMIT account and complete Part 1. Select EA and the fee waiver option – the fee is automatically waived, but won’t appear waived until shortly after November 1. Completing the Part 1 lets you track the progress of your application.

If you’re named a QuestBridge Finalist and ranked MIT, your QuestBridge application will be forwarded to us for review. We submit the QuestBridge application in place of our Part 2, Eval A, Eval B, and SSR. Please note that we request an official transcript sent directly from your school in addition to any transcript included in your QuestBridge application. We accept QuestBridge applications without a humanities teacher evaluation (Eval B), but if your application didn’t include and a math/science teacher evaluation (Eval A), please ask the appropriate recommender to complete a letter of recommendation for you.

MIT will contact Matched Finalists on December 3.

If you applied for the QuestBridge Match but were not selected as a Finalist, you are still welcome to apply to MIT through Early Action or Regular Action.

MIT practices need-blind admissions for all students. If you’re admitted through Early Action or Regular Action, MIT will assemble a financial aid award made up of grants and scholarships that will meet 100% of your demonstrated need. This usually means an award similar to the College Match Scholarship.
