Massachusetts Institute of Technology: A Place for Women, p. 9, 1973
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology: A Place for Women brochure was developed in honor of the 100th anniversary of the graduation of Ellen Swallow Richards (Class of 1873), the first woman admitted to MIT. Created as a UROP project and supervised by Anne Thompson '69, a former philosophy student at MIT, the brochure is part of the MIT Libraries Women Scientists and Engineers Oral History Collection.
Pass/Fail at MIT
First-year grading is designed to ease your transition to MIT by giving you time to adjust to factors like increased workloads and variations in academic preparation and teaching methods. You start with Pass or No Record (P/NR) grading during fall and IAP terms and transition to A, B, C, or No Record grades for the spring semester. Standard A-F grading begins in your sophomore year.
