MIT Employee Applicants

Most MIT employees are eligible to apply via the Advanced Study Program, so please review the eligibility requirements carefully.

MIT employees may be eligible for reimbursement of one MIT course per term through the Tuition Assistance Plan. Employees must adhere to the same application procedures, deadlines, and qualifications as all Special Students.

MIT employees must also obtain the approval of their supervisor by requesting that the supervisor provide a letter of recommendation via the online application. Once they are admitted as a Special Student, employees must submit additional information to the Benefits Office in order to obtain a tuition deferment prior to the start of class. If students successfully complete their course by earning a minimum final grade of C- or better for an undergraduate course or B- or better for a graduate course, and if they remain eligible to participate in the Tuition Assistance Plan through the last day of their course, their student account will be credited with the amount of the tuition (a prorated amount for part-time employees) by an internal transfer of funds. Please note that auditing a course is not permitted under the Tuition Assistance Plan.

Further information the Tuition Assitance Plan is provided by Human Resouces in the section for Employee Benefits.
