Financing your CSE SM Degree

The CSE SM program cannot guarantee financial support for each admitted student, however we make every effort to match admitted students with CCSE-affiliated faculty who can offer financial support through a sponsored research project.  Most internal sources of support at MIT are in the form of research assistantships (RAs) and teaching assistantships (TAs). The CCSE administrator is in contact with faculty in search of matches between faculty research interests, funding, and the profiles of admitted SM students, with the objective of helping students find opportunities for financial support. Students who arrive on campus without having secured financial support will be expected to pay their own tuition, fees and living expenses. For more detailed information regarding the cost of attendance, including specific costs for tuition and fees, books and supplies, housing and food as well as transportation, please visit the MIT Student Financial Services (SFS) website.
