Can I get financial aid for the summer term?

MIT undergraduate and graduate students are automatically eligible for participation in MIT’s summer session; however, MIT does not award need-based aid from institutional sources to undergraduates for summer classes.

MIT’s commitment is to aid its undergraduate students for the nine-month academic year (the fall and spring terms). If you’re planning to attend MIT’s summer term, contact your financial aid counselor to receive information on other possible funding sources. Sometimes borrowing additional funds may be necessary.
