Scholarship for international students


Scholarship for International students

International students are considered for aid using the same process that we use for all applicants. We are committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for international students just as we are for domestic students.

Our commitment to affordability

We want to make sure that MIT is an affordable option for all of our admitted students. Our financial aid team works closely with you and your family to develop a plan tailored to your financial circumstances, so that you can attend MIT and cover your expenses while you’re here.


APPLY FOR ADMISSION FIRST


How to apply

Applying for financial aid can be complicated, so we have broken it down to make it a bit easier. Before we can decide what your financial aid award looks like, we need to know what your financial situation is. To do this, we use two documents that paint us a detailed picture of what kind of aid you’ll need to be able to attend MIT affordably.


Two steps to apply for aid.

1, CSS Profile: a tool provided by the College Board that we use to determine if you qualify for a need-based MIT Scholarship

APPLY HERE

2, Parental tax returns or income documentation: your parents’ tax returns or income documentation must be submitted through the College Board’s secure IDOC platform. If your parents live outside the U.S., please provide the tax return from that country, along with a translation to English if applicable.

More about each of the pieces we use to determine aid.


1: CSS PROFILE

The CSS Profile is a tool provided by the College Board. We use it to determine if you qualify for a need-based MIT Scholarship.

For the 2023–2024 application, you will need the following:

      > Your parents’ 2021 income tax returns or wage.  statements

      > Any other records of money earned

      > Current bank account balances

      > Records of investments

      > Records of untaxed income

* Designate MIT as one of your recipients by using our CSS code 3514 and answer all supplemental questions specific to MIT.

* If your parents are separated or divorced, each parent will need to complete their own CSS Profile application.


FILL OUT THE CSS PROFILE →


2: PARENTAL TAX RETURNS OR INCOME DOCUMENTATION

* After submitting the CSS Profile, you will need to submit your parents’ tax returns or income documentation to the College Board’s secure Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC) for processing. 

* If your parents live outside the U.S., please provide the tax return from that country, along with a translation to English if applicable.

* If your parents are separated or divorced, you will need both parents’ income documentation.

* You must submit all documents directly to IDOC. We are not able to accept anything sent directly to MIT.

Please note: It can take up to two weeks for the tax returns to be received by MIT.

Aid deadlines

When your financial aid application is due depends on whether you are a prospective student applying for Early or Regular Action, or are a continuing student.

Application deadlines are the same for both domestic and international students.

* Early Action applicants: 

November 30. Complete all required documents—excluding the FAFSA—by November 30 for Early Action. Please note: The 2024–2025 FAFSA will not be available until December, and the date has not been announced. Once it’s available, domestic students should submit it as soon as possible. We aim to release awards in January 2024 but may be delayed due to the FAFSA release date. We will update this page when we know what our timeline will be.

* Regular Action and transfer applicants: 

February 15. The application deadline is February 15. RA awards are released in mid-March. Transfer awards are released after admission decisions.

* Continuing students: 

February 15. The financial aid application deadline for the following academic year is February 15. You will receive your award in late May or early June.


* Late aid applications

We understand that life happens and sometimes deadlines are missed. There is no need to ask for an extension—just submit your application as quickly as possible. Late applicants will receive their financial aid decision later than those who submit by the deadline, but we try to review all applications as quickly as possible.

There are no penalties for late applications. However, financial aid applications must be received before the end of the academic year, in order to be considered for aid in that academic year. For most students, that is mid-May. For those only attending in the fall, you must submit your aid application by mid-December. If your application isn’t completed by that time, you will not be eligible to receive either MIT or federal financial aid for that academic year.



How to view your financial aid award

* Current MIT students: You can view your award in our Online Financial Aid System.

* Prospective first-year students: You can access your award through the MIT Application Portal until mid-May, after this time it can be viewed in our Online Financial Aid System.
