If you wish to apply for or renew your scholarship, loan and job assistance from MIT, your financial aid application is due April 15, 2013. Financial aid award decisions are sent in mid-June. Mail or fax all documents directly to Student Financial Services. Remember to keep copies of all your application documents. Also keep in mind that after you are awarded financial aid there are additional steps you must take before your aid is disbursed.
Please make sure to complete and include our cover letter when submitting documentation.
Late financial aid applicants may be penalized by having some MIT Scholarship eligibility replaced by self-help. If you have extenuating circumstances that will delay completion of your financial aid application, please contact your financial aid counselor before April 15 to request a deadline extension.
