MIT Student Financial Services Financial Aid


Once you’re an MIT undergraduate, you must apply for financial aid for each academic year. We review your eligibility for aid with the updated information you and your parents give to us when you reapply for aid. However, you should expect to receive roughly the same financial aid, provided there are no significant changes in your family's finances or eligibility and you meet the financial aid renewal deadlines.

The steps and deadlines for applying for undergraduate financial aid vary depending on your citizenship and the academic year for which you need aid. Please select from the following options.

You can track the status of your financial aid application by checking MIT Online Financial Aid System.
