When we admit students, we don't just welcome them into our community, we welcome you as well!

  • Congratulations on your student’s admission to MIT! Simply put: They’re amazing. And you played no small part in bringing them to this point in their lives. You are equal parts coach, counselor, and cheerleader—so take a moment to celebrate—you deserve it too!

    That said, we know you have questions. As a community dedicated to hands-on learning and research, we'd typically invite you to join us to find out what MIT is all about. However, due to MIT's strict Covid-19 safety protocols, Campus Preview Weekend will be for students only this year.

    We know this is disappointing, but we are planning a series of virtual programs for parents and families that will answer your questions and give you a good sense of what MIT is like. Think of it as your own virtual CPW. We'll reach out in early spring with more detailed information. And we will share information with you in mid-Janaury about our on-campus CPW policies, Covid-19 precautions, and travel guidelines for admitted students. In the meantime, go celebrate with your new MIT student—you’ve both earned it!

    From all of us at MIT Admissions, we wish you a safe and healthy New Year!
