  1. Are international students eligible for funding?

    Yes! All accepted MAS students (international and domestic) are offered full funding.  MAS students receive a monthly stipend and have their tuition/insurance covered.

  2. I think I meet the criteria for an IELTS waiver, but I'm not sure. What should I do?

    Go ahead and fill out the waiver request form and upload your supporting documents.  The department will review all requests and contact you directly with a decision.

  3. I am registered for an IELTS exam but the test results may not arrive by the admissions deadline. Is this a problem?

    If you are registered for an exam before the admissions deadline, this will not be a problem.  Make sure you use the electronic code for MIT Graduate Admissions, your test results will be routed directly to your application as soon as they arrive.

  4. How does MIT handle visas? Is there someone I should contact now?

    As soon as a student  accepts admission, MAS will reach out to them about working with the MIT International Students Office.  For more information on visas and International Student life at MIT, please check out the ISO page. ISO will not be able to answer questions about individual situations until a student is accepted into the program.
