Graduate Appointment Portal (GAP) Landing Page

On this page:


The Graduate Appointment Portal (GAP) is the application MIT graduate assistants and others use to create graduate awards including Fellowships, Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships, and Instructor-G appointments.

In spring 2017, GAP replaced the Web Grad Aid (WGA) application. All appointments from June 2009 (aid year 2010) have been migrated into GAP. Appointments prior to that date can still be viewed in the Web Grad Aid application. No new appointments may be created or viewed in Web Grad Aid.

How to Access

The Graduate Appointment Portal can be accessed at Touchstone and Duo authentication is required.
