Tuition Assistance for MIT Employees
- After you’ve been accepted into ASP check with HR to see if you’re a benefits-eligible employee.
- If you are a benefits-eligible employee you can request a tuition postponement by following the directions in STEP TWO on the HR website.
- Grades count: For MIT to pay for your class you’ll need to earn:
- C- or higher in an undergraduate course
- B- or higher in a graduate course, or
- “P” if you take a Pass/Fail course (MIT calls this a P/D/F course)
- If you qualify to use MIT’s Tuition Assistance Plan, MIT will pay for you to take one course each term provided that you successfully complete each course. For more details about this benefit go to page 4 of this document “Courses taken & successfully completed….” (for purposes of this pdf document ASP students are considered “special students”).
