Key terms for billing & repayment

MITPAY
MITPAY is our online payment system where you can view and pay your bill. An account is automatically created for every MIT student.
Authorized user
A person, most often a parent or spouse, who is designated by an MIT student as being allowed to view their monthly bill and make payments using MITPAY.
Monthly Payment Plan
Allows students and their authorized users to pay their bill in regular monthly installments. The plan makes paying a bit easier with five payments per term instead of one lump sum.
