For Prospective Students

“APR has helped make a place so far away from my family feel like a second home, both for me, as well as other current and previous generations of Puerto Rican students at MIT. We are a large family, and not many other universities have as strong a Puerto Rican group on campus—we are very proud to represent Puerto Rico here.”

Javier A. Vilá Ortiz ’23

“The APR community has been one of the greatest gifts MIT has given me. Being away from home was challenging at first, but APR provided me with a safe space where I could be my full self at MIT.”

Daniel González-Díaz ’21

“APR specifically has been a huge part of my life while being a student here. The APR community has provided me with a support group that encouraged me at all times and gave me a sense of home as soon as I got to MIT. My MIT experience wouldn’t have been the same without APR.”

Nina Sara Fraticelli-Guzmán ’19

MIT and the Office of Minority Education (OME) host numerous prestigious programs for high school and undergraduate students. Participating in one of MIT’s summer programs for high school students is a fantastic way to learn more about what life at MIT is like, and will also help make your application stand out! The OME also offers a co-curricular program for incoming AdMITs called Interphase EDGE which has an 8-week transitional summer program. Participating is an excellent way to meet some other ~75 class members, familiarize yourself with MIT’s campus, and experience MIT-level coursework early on. The OME also hosts a wide range of other programs as well for current undergraduates.
