Estimated Costs & Fees for Spring/Summer 2022
Please note living expenses will vary during the summer semester based on internship placement. The above estimates are based on the MIT cost of living during the entire internship placement. Living expenses and health insurance costs will also vary if you are planning to attend the program with dependents/spouse.
The MIT Graduate Admissions website provides information on living expenses (please note that this information is a 12-month period). This will give a rough estimate of the cost of living for a student and will be helpful to look over if you are bringing a partner or dependents.
