The General Institute Requirement states that all students are required to complete a minimum of eight points and the swim requirement. Students are expected to complete this requirement by the end of the sophomore year. Transfer students need only complete four points of credit and the swim requirement.
Students can earn physical education points through core courses or
alternative options such as group exercise classes,
personal training sessions, private swim lessons, or participation in varsity sports or ROTC.
MIT undergraduate students are required to meet the swim requirement by taking a swim course or electing to take the swim test. Swim courses are offered throughout the year and students can register through the on-line physical education registration system.
The summer physical education schedule is here. The summer session runs from July 1 - Aug 8. Registration opens Monday, May 20 at 8a for undergraduates and Monday, May 27 for graduate students. Registration closes for everyone on Wednesday, June 19 at 1p.
