MIT Transfer Application: 

Fee Waiver

If the application fee presents a hardship for you and your family, you may qualify for a fee waiver. To request a fee waiver, ask your advisor, financial aid officer, or other school official to submit an official letter on your behalf.

Part 2: Essays, Activities & Tests Form


The required essays consist of four short-answer response questions (250 word limit). Remember that your essays are not a writing test. They’re the place in the application where we look for your voice - who you are, what drives you, what's important to you, what makes you tick. Be honest, be open, be real - connect with us. That's all that matters.


Please use our form, not a resume, to list your activities. There is only enough space in this section to list a few things, so please choose the activities that mean the most to you and tell us a bit about them. This will tell us more about you than any "laundry list" of everything you've ever done.

Standardized Tests

You should self-report your standardized test scores in Part 2 of your application, However, your scores must also be reported to us officially from the testing agency; scores you list on your application and scores appearing on your school transcript will not be considered official.
