Your department processes your teaching or research assistant award. Once it has been processed it will be reflected on MITPay. Please contact your department with further questions about processing.
The level of support for MIT graduate students to study abroad varies, but each year several MIT graduate students win distinguished international grants to study and conduct research abroad in a wide variety of fields.
For information on funding opportunities for graduate students with international study topics, consult the Office of Graduate Education or the Center for International Studies.
Graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible for federal student assistance to study abroad if they are receiving academic credit from MIT.
You are expected to complete your degree program without interruption.
If you’re granted a medical withdrawal or required to withdraw for a medical reason, you’re no longer registered for classes and no longer eligible to receive funding from or through MIT. This includes research or teaching assistantships. Under most circumstances, external fellowship funding is also suspended. You must contact your fellowship administrator for the applicable policy, since some fellowships pay stipends directly to students.
The Office of Graduate Education has general information on withdrawals and information on medical withdrawals.
The financial aid team will work with you to see if you qualify for federal loan funding. Graduate fellowships, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships are awarded by each department, lab, or center. You should contact your program administrator to learn more.
Tuition is subsidized for all MIT students. The price of graduate degree programs varies by program and can be found under the specific area of study on the registrar’s website.
For graduate students living on campus for the summer, you will be billed monthly for housing. You can view your monthly bill on MITPay. Payment is always due on the first of the following month.
We want to remind you that if your account has a balance due prior to registration day, you may be placed on registration hold.
If you have questions about any of the summer charges, you should contact Housing. If you have any questions about paying the bill, you should reach out to us at email@example.com.
