Tuition and Fees

Tuition for the forthcoming academic year is set each March by the MIT Corporation based on a recommendation from Academic Council. For academic year 2014-2015, full regular tuition per term is as follows:

Summer $14,900
Fall and Spring $22,360

 

Payment of full tuition in either fall or spring terms also covers subjects taken for academic credit during the January Independent Activities Period (IAP).

Special students (those not enrolled in degree programs and taking classes for personal or professional reasons) are charged tuition per unit of academic credit. In the 2014-2015 academic year, the charge is $699 per unit with a minimum charge of $6,291.

More detail about these charges and some programs at MIT which have special tuition rates is available in the undergraduate and graduate student tuition pages of this website. Information is also available here about tuition pro-ration in the cases of students who withdraw in the course of a term and for graduate students who complete their theses early.

Non-Institute visiting students are subject to a visiting student registration fee in each term in which they register.

Tuition and fee information for prior years is available on the Prior Years' Tuition page.

For more information or to ask about specific tuition situations please contact Peter Hayes, Associate Registrar, (617) 258-6406.
