The U.S. government determines the amount of federal student aid (grants, loans, and work-study) you qualify for using the FAFSA. SFS then disburses these funds to your student account.

Designate MIT as one of your recipients using Federal Code 002178.

If you think you will not qualify for MIT need-based aid and would like to apply for federal aid only, please complete the FAFSA and email sfs@mit.edu to let us know you do not wish to complete the other application requirements. All emails must come directly from the student.
