What you need to know

The Committee on Curricula (CoC) reviews and approves petitions to substitute an Institute Laboratory subject or a Restricted Elective in Science and Technology (REST) subject. The Committee also reviews and approves double major applications. Petitions are considered at CoC meetings during the academic year, and in all cases, the Committee’s decisions are final. Follow the links at the left for detailed information on each type of CoC petition.

Some key points to remember:

  • CoC petitions are available for download in PDF format.
  • You will need to complete the appropriate form, carefully follow the instructions, and obtain the required signatures before submitting.
  • Completed petitions should be sent to curricula@mit.edu.
