This section provides a general overview of the admissions process. More information can be found under each specific degree within the five discipline groups.

Graduate Admissions is detailed below. Students who wish to study architecture at MIT at the undergraduate level must first be accepted to MIT. At the end of the first year MIT students decide which course of study they wish to pursue and declare a major in a specific department. Undergraduate applicants do not apply directly to the Department. They will use the MIT central admissions application.

Additional information and instructions for undergraduate applicants and transfer students are available in the MIT Admissions website:
