Applicants whose first language is not English must present evidence of their English ability. Applicants must take either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). The IELTS exam is preferred at MIT. Please note that MIT also accepts the IELTS Indicator test, which can be taken online from home. We require a minimum TOEFL Internet-based score of 100 or a minimum IELTS score of 7 for admission. The institute code for the TOEFL exam is 3514.
International non-native speakers of English who have spent four or more years studying in an accredited school or university where English is the language of instruction will be eligible to waive the TOEFL/IELTS requirement. If you fulfill this criteria, you will have the option to request to waive the TOEFL/IELTS test on the online application, under the section 'Test Scores'. TOEFL and IELTS scores are valid for two years. Scores that expire while an application is under review will be considered valid.
You can find additional information for international students through MIT's International Students Office website, or reach out to us directly.
Finally, please note if you are admitted to the DEDP Master's program you would not be eligible for OPT enrollment or a STEM extension.
