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

  • Congratulations on your student’s acceptance 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 for yourself—you deserve it too!

    That said, we know you have questions. As an institution dedicated to hands-on learning and research, we want you to join us and find out what MIT is all about. That's why CP isn’t just for students, it provides family members with an opportunity to be a part of our vibrant community.  

    CP✱ allows you to get a taste of student life and academics at MIT. Many events are specifically designed to introduce families to the MIT community from that unique point of view, and to answer all of your important questions. At CP✱ 2020, over 800 family members joined us for a month’s worth of activities. Like to cross stitch? Come stitch with Snively. Want to learn about Next House, we’ll have that too. As we mentioned on the top page, we will be sharing details in the coming months, so stay tuned.

    From all of us at MIT Admissions, we wish you a happy and safe 2021!

    We can’t wait to meet you on Zoom!
