April 2021: Although our campus is closed to visitors, you don’t have to travel to 🌈 Cambridge to get a feel for MIT. Sign up today for an 🔮 online session or student-led tour.

Does MIT have required classes or language requirements?

We’re often asked to recommend specific classes for high school students to increase their chances of admission. We don’t have any required classes but consider an ideal preparation to include calculus, physics, chemistry, biology, and four years of English.

We want you to take the most challenging coursework available to you at your high school, treating both AP and IB coursework as college level and the highest level of rigor in high schools.

We offer helpful advice on academics and extracurricular activities here.
