Learn more about how MIT Admissions is responding to COVID-19 in this blog post from our Dean and new dedicated FAQs.

Transfer applicants: Veterans

MIT has a long history of educating veterans, both before and after their service. If you’re a veteran and interested in an MIT education, please know that we greatly appreciate your interest and your service.

How to apply

Veteran applicants may apply for admission through the same process as other prospective students. While most of our veterans are eligible to apply for transfer admission, some are eligible for first-year admission, so please check first to make sure you understand which application you should use. Veterans who have already completed an undergraduate degree may be interested in exploring our options for continuing and professional education.

Application assistance

MIT also has a proud partnership with Service to School (S2S), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free college application assistance to transitioning service members and veterans. S2S was founded by veterans and is led by veterans who are committed to transforming the veteran community through the power of higher education.

Financial Aid

MIT does offer need-blind admissions and full-need financial aid for all undergraduate students, so if you are accepted for undergraduate study, we will make sure that you can afford to come to MIT. Information specific to veterans, including educational benefits, is available on the Student Financial Services site.

If you have specific questions about the application process for veterans, please contact Tiffany Velez, Assistant Director of Admissions, at [email protected].
