Payments may be made by check or credit card.

Check payments must be made in US Dollars and drawn on a US Bank. Checks should be made payable to MIT.

International Participants

Since the Institute will function more like a conference than a full course of study, we expect those who are not US citizens or permanent residents will be able to enter the country on a visitor visa or through the visa waiver program. All are urged to apply for these entry documents at the earliest date possible, since you may experience delays in securing travel documents required for entry into the US.
