Pass / No Pass

MIT knows the workload isn’t easy and wants to help students get a good handle on balance before adding the pressure of grades on top of everything else. During the first semester of freshman year, students don’t receive a letter grade for any courses.


MIT is all about the research. In fact, there are so many different types of research opportunities on campus, spanning a whole host of departments, that it is possible for students to do research for all four years of their undergraduate career.

Distinguished Professors

MIT is overflowing with Nobel laureates—78 total including 21 alumni, five emeritus faculty, and eight current faculty. Then there are the 21 MacArthur Genius Grant fellows and four Pulitzer Prize winners. Talk about brain power.
