Yes. You need to be admitted to the program! Earning the MITx MicroMasters Credential does not guarantee admission. It does allow us to look at a more expanded track record for each applicant. Additionally, in the application process you will need to submit some additional material – such as a resume, an essay, and a proposal for your thesis project. I am certain that we will have hundreds of applicants for dozens of spots. We will take the best students we can find for the limited slots that we have available. Space on campus will always be scarce resource so there will always need to be an admissions process. See the Blended Master's program page for more information.
