Graduate Policies & Procedures

Cross registration

A regular, full-time graduate student at MIT may enroll to take subjects (exclusive of thesis) at Harvard or Wellesley without paying additional tuition, provided that this enrollment does not exceed one-half of their total registration units for the term. This cooperative arrangement is not applicable to the summer session.

Requests for registration under this cooperative arrangement must be approved by the student’s MIT department or program and should be confined to subjects that are not offered at the student’s own institution. Students will not be allowed to attend classes in which additional registrants put an undue load on the instructors. Grades earned in cross-registered subjects appear on the transcripts of MIT graduate students as the closest equivalent MIT grade.

HARVARD UNIVERSITY

The procedures to follow for cross registration at Harvard are available from the MIT Registrar.

WELLESLEY COLLEGE

The procedures to follow for cross registration at Wellesley are available from the MIT Registrar.
