Transfer applicants: Veterans

MIT has a long history of educating veterans, both before and after their service. If you are a veteran interested in an MIT education, please know that we deeply appreciate your interest and your service, and we look forward to supporting you through the admissions process.

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.

Financial aid

MIT’s offers full-need financial aid through need-blind admissions for all undergraduate students. If you are accepted for undergraduate study, we will make sure that you can afford to come to MIT.

As a veteran of the U.S. armed forces, you may be eligible for benefits that can significantly aid in your costs to attend MIT. Information specific to veterans—including Post-9/11 GI Bill®, Yellow Ribbon Program, and other financial support benefits—is available on the Student Financial Services site.

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.

If you have specific questions about the application process for veterans, please contact the MIT Admissions veteran liaison.
