Tuition & Expenses

MIT works to help admitted and enrolled graduate students afford tuition and other costs by providing qualifying students with a range of financial support including loans and limited fellowships. Students may apply for teaching and research assistantships in their second semester and merit scholarships are awarded annually. Some support is granted on the basis of financial need, some on a combination of merit and need. Once you are admitted, the MIT Student Financial Services Office can help you make a financial plan based on your lifestyle, the size of your household, and other personal choices. Most of our graduate students make one tuition payment before each term. Students can also choose the MIT Monthly Payment Plan, which allows them to pay tuition in four installments during the term.

Estimated Tuition and Fees 2016–2017**:

• Tuition $68,250
• Books and Supplies** $2,300*
• Computer (first year only) $2,000*
• Food $5,020*
• Personal (includes medical insurance) $5,860*

*The tuition figure above is set for the 2016–2017 academic year, but all living expenses are taken from 2015–2016, as next year’s figures have not been set. There may be a small increase in some or all of those figures.

**The MIT Sloan MBA tuition and fees figure above is inclusive of all university fees, while many of our peer schools assess additional required fees of between $1,000 and $7,000.

***While the student is responsible for purchasing textbooks, all required course packs for the core classes are included as part of the tuition cost.

Read a recent article: Service, then School – MIT Sloan Veterans Seek to Involve the Community and Share their Experiences.

"The Sloan Veterans Association is a diverse cross-section of military backgrounds and has been an invaluable resource during the transition back to school. The second year students in the club go above and beyond to help with the internship recruiting process, and we're looking forward to passing that same level of support along next year. A real sense of military mentorship is alive and well both here at MIT Sloan and throughout the larger alumni network."Patrick O'Brien, MBA ‘15
