What You Need to Know about Withdrawing: Financial Considerations

Please note the following financial considerations when considering a withdrawal.


Tuition for students withdrawing voluntarily or medically will be prorated according to the Registrar's proration tables. Please see the official MIT policy on costs and tuition adjustments located in the MIT Bulletin.

Financial Aid and Loans

If you receive financial aid, you should be in touch with Student Financial Aid to find out how withdrawal impacts aid and to be aware of future deadlines. If you have received student loans, you must contact Loan Services for an Exit Interview before leaving MIT. Failure to receive an Exit Interview will result in a hold being placed on any future registration.
