Paying your bill: Payment options

We do our best to make it easy for you and your family to pay your bill. We offer a number of different options, including a monthly payment plan for those seeking an alternative to paying in one lump sum.

There are four ways for you to pay your bill, each of which is explained more below:

  • MITPAY (preferred)
  • Flywire (domestic and international wire payments)
  • Check
  • Sponsored billing

MIT does not accept cash, credit card, debit card, or direct wire payments for student accounts.

MITPAY

MITPAY is the best way to send electronic payments from a U.S. bank account or international payments through Flywire to MIT. It’s a secure and paperless way to pay your MIT bills and there’s no additional charge. There are two different ways to access MITPAY:

Flywire

Flywire is a third-party company partnering with MIT to streamline international payments and domestic wire transfers. With Flywire, you can monitor your payment throughout the transaction process and will receive confirmation once your payment has been sent to MIT.

To access Flywire, log into MITPAY and click the Flywire logo found on the My Account page. If a third party is submitting a payment for you through Flywire, please email us for instructions.

Check

You are also welcome to pay by check. Just remember that all checks must be from a U.S. bank and be payable in U.S. dollars. We accept personal checks, as well as checks from scholarship foundations, 529 Savings Accounts, employers, or government agencies.

When sending your check, please include your billing statement and a check made payable to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Sponsored billing

Sponsored billing means a qualified third party—such as a U.S. or foreign company, U.S. government department or agency, or a pre-paid college plan—is paying for your tuition and fees. If you are being reimbursed by your employer, this is not considered sponsored billing.

We accept documents through October 1 for the fall term and March 1 for the spring term.

Detailed information for both students and sponsors is available on the sponsored billing page.
