If you wish to apply for scholarship, loan and job assistance from MIT, please submit the following documents no later than February 15, 2015 for both early-action and regular-action admissions applicants. 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 your financial aid award letter. 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.
*U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents Only
Designate MIT as one of your recipients using federal code 002178
Available January 1, 2015
(If you believe you will not qualify for MIT Scholarship assistance and would like to apply for federal aid only, please complete the FAFSA and email firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us you will not be completing the rest of the application requirements. The email should come from the student, not from a parent.)
Designate MIT as a recipient by using our CSS code number of 3514 and answer the CSS Supplemental Questions specific to MIT.
|Non-Custodial Parent's Profile||
If your parents are separated or divorced, your non-custodial parent must file this form.
Once you complete the CSS PROFILE, CSS will e-mail you application instructions, including a link to the Noncustodial Parent's PROFILE web site and login instructions, to send to your noncustodial parent.
Parents' 2014 U.S. Income Tax Returns, W-2 forms and all schedules
Canadian Citizens must submit their entire T1 General tax return and T4 statements. The "Notice of Assessment" is not sufficient data.
Submit your parents' 2014 tax returns directly to the College Board using their IDOC service. You will receive an email with a cover sheet and detailed instructions from CSS on how to submit these documents (Please note: emails will be sent starting in early February 2015). These must be the final returns that are submitted to the IRS; we cannot accept a draft or estimate. Please allow up to 2 weeks processing time on all documents submitted to IDOC.
If you will not be able to send the 2014 income tax return through the IDOC service by February 15, 2015, send your 2013 income tax returns, W-2 forms, and all schedules directly to Student Financial Services. Due to security concerns, we are unable to accept emailed copies. You will be required to submit the 2014 Tax Returns to IDOC when they are available.
If your family owns a corporation or interest in a partnership, you must send the most recent corporation or partnership tax return. Please note that a K-1 is insufficient data, as the complete taxes are needed.
If you, your parents, or other siblings are beneficiaries of an estate or trust, submit the appropriate schedule K-1 of IRS Form 1041 or IRS Form 4970 through IDOC.
If your parents are separated or divorced, your non-custodial parent's tax returns are also required.
Important: Do not send tax documents to MIT by e-mail. We are unable to process electronic or scanned copies of U.S. and Canadian tax forms.
|CSS Business/Farm Supplement||
This form will only be required if we request it from you. If your parent(s) are self-employed or have any ownership in a business, please make sure you answer those questions correctly on the CSS Profile.
If your family has special circumstances or unusual expenses, or you have any other information that will help us understand their financial situation more completely, please send us a letter detailing that information.
If you will not be able to send the 2014 income tax return through the IDOC service by February 15, 2015, send your 2013 income tax returns, W-2 forms, and all schedules directly to Student Financial Services. You will be required to submit the 2014 Tax Returns to IDOC when they are available.
