Applying from Countries With Different Academic Calendars

posted in: International
MIT is aware of the different academic calendar in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, South Africa and other countries in the southern hemisphere.

Students in these countries may apply to MIT before completing high school or wait until they graduate. We suggest students apply to university in their home country and begin studies while they wait to learn their MIT admission decision in mid-March.

Transfer credits are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are not determined until after the student begins study at MIT.
