If you wish to apply for scholarship, loan and job assistance from MIT, please submit the following documents no later than February 15, 2015. We read applications in the order they are completed, so the earlier you get your application documents in to us, the earlier you will have you financial aid award letter.
Please make sure to complete and include our cover letter when submitting documentation.
You can track the status of your financial aid application by checking MyMIT. Remember to keep copies of all your application documents. Also keep in mind that after you're awarded financial aid, there are additional steps you must take before your aid is disbursed. Those steps are outlined on our finalizing undergraduate awards page.
Canadian Citizens should follow the domestic instructions here.
