Loans, Financial Assistance and Scholarships

Financial Aid
Only students who qualify as regular or provisional-status students qualify for federal financial aid.  Students must be enrolled in at least five credits (two MIT courses) in a semester to qualify. 

The University Scholarships and Financial Aid office can provide further information regarding federal loans. The first step to receiving federal funds is to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Contact the University Scholarships and Financial Aid Office directly with additional questions:

Students also have the option of pursing loans from private lenders.

Please Note: If you are applying for federal financial aid, you must either include your social security number on the application, or send a notarized letter to the graduate school with your social security number.

While there are currently no MIT scholarship funds available through the university, there are many independent scholarships available to graduate students in an accredited information technology master's program. You can find details on some of these scholarship opportunities here. We hope this information will inspire your own additional scholarship research.
