What you need to know

Tuition for the upcoming academic year is announced in March by the MIT Corporation and based on a recommendation from Academic Council. Your tuition depends on your registration load. As the steward of your registration, the Registrar’s Office assesses tuition.

Some key points to remember:

  • Payment of full tuition in the fall or spring terms also covers subjects taken for academic credit during the Independent Activities Period (IAP) in January.
  • There are a number of miscellaneous fees associated with registration.
  • If you need assistance with your MITPay Student Account, please contact your customer service counselor at Student Financial Services (SFS).
  • For more detailed information regarding the cost of attendance for the 2024–2025 academic year including tuition and fees; books and supplies; and housing, food, and transportation; please visit the undergraduate and graduate pages on the SFS website.
