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.
In certain circumstances, you may be eligible for a graduate student summer tuition subsidy. However, if you’re a candidate for a professional degree, you’ll be charged tuition if you’re registered for the summer. Consult the Summer Session Catalogue for more information on tuition and financial aid for graduate and professional students.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
