For questions about changes in financial circumstances and impact on Financial Aid, SFS has detailed information, including 2020 Financial support for undergrads.

Uncovered Medical Expenses

Contact S3 for information on help for uncovered medical expenses and ask a dean about the Miller Fund. The Miller Fund is a resource available to help with medical costs not covered by insurance.

  • IS&T loaner equipment
  • Other Loaner Technology offered during COVID: To promote collaboration and small group problem solving for our enrolled students, whether remote or on-campus, MIT will loan a cellular-enabled Apple iPad and Apple Pencil to any undergraduate student who does not already have one, or who wishes to upgrade relative to what they own. For more details and to indicate whether or not you wish to enroll, fill out the short loaner request form. Further, as during the spring semester, MIT will once again loan WiFi hotspots and computing equipment, including laptops, to those who need them.
