My FAFSA says it is “Not received” on my application/admit portal, what do I do? 

Your FAFSA will not be processed by the Department of Education until mid-March. This means that MIT will not receive information about your FAFSA until mid-March at the earliest. You will receive an email once it is fully processed, letting you know that your FAFSA information has been sent to MIT. Until that time, your FAFSA will appear as “Not Received” in your application/admit portal. If we anticipate that you are eligible for federal aid it will be estimated on your financial aid award.
