Students who have not completed MIT's Covid-19 and flu vaccination requirements may pre-register for classes, but will not be able to access campus (except their residence hall) or complete their spring registration until both requirements are met.

What you need to know

Pre-registration is an opportunity for you to plan your class schedule for the upcoming term and prepare to meet with your advisor. You will pre-register in May for the summer session and fall term, and in December for IAP and the spring term. Continuing students are required to pre-register, even if for thesis or research only.

Some key points to remember:

  • Although the subjects you select during pre-registration will populate your initial registration, they are nonbinding. You must confirm your selections during registration.
  • Sloan Course Bidding (Course 15) is open to non-Sloan students during fall and spring pre-registration.

What you need to know about CI-H/HW:

  • Students interested in pre-registering for subjects designated as Communication Intensive in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CI-H/HW) will use the CI-H/HW selection tool, accessed through pre-registration.
  • During pre-registration, you may request prioritized scheduling for up to two CI-H/HW subjects. You may select alternatives for each subject.
  • If you do not select CI-H/HW subjects before the first pre-registration deadline, you will forfeit the opportunity to do so and move directly to the waitlist for all subjects.

What you need to do

  • Find subject offerings for the fall and spring terms in the online Subject Listing & 
Schedule. The advanced search feature can help you find subjects that fit your interests 
or schedule.
  • Read about summer offerings in the Summer Session Catalog.
  • Enter your subjects through the subject selection process or auto-submit your selections 
directly to pre-registration from the Subject Listing.
  • Remember to request your CI-H/HW choices by the pre-registration deadline.
  • Submit your pre-registration. Go to the pre-registration summary page to review your 
    Pre-register in WebSIS.
  • Schedules, based on pre-registration, will be generated for all students prior to the first 
day of classes and will be available on WebSIS.
  • Don’t forget to complete the registration process to finalize your selections.
