Prepare for your Trip

There are a few things you need to do at MIT to get ready for your adventure.

Worksheets for Study Abroad

Complete a worksheet for study abroad. This way MIT can approve your travel.

Return your worksheet to Global Education, E39-305, by May 1 for summer, fall, or full year programs or by December 1 for IAP or spring programs. 

What Worksheet Do You Need?

Make sure you are using the correct worksheet for your program. Select either the worksheet for the Cambridge-MIT Exchange or for other semester or other full-year programs. If you are studying abroad during the summer only, and not seeking credit, select the worksheet for summer study abroad.

You should also complete and sign the MIT Risk Acknowledgement Form and return it to Global Education by the above deadlines.
