My family has more than one child in college at the same time, does this mean my aid will be reduced?

MIT uses the CSS Profile to determine need-based aid. We will continue to count siblings in college, so you will likely not experience any changes. If you were eligible for a Pell Grant in the past and it was reduced due to FAFSA Simplification, we will replace this with a grant to meet 100% of demonstrated need. You can get a sense of how much federal student aid you may be eligible for, with the Federal Student Aid Estimator. It takes about 10 minutes, and you can do this before filling out the FAFSA.
