Tuition & Scholarships


Tuition and Fees

The tuition for the residential program for the 2017-2018 academic year is $71,000 plus student life fee ($312), medical insurance ($3,000), and living expenses. Living expenses vary, depending on your living style and whether students live alone, with roommates, or have a family. The cost of living in Boston and Cambridge is higher than in much of the country. Currently, a budget of $2,770 per month is recommended for single students, for 10 months this is $27,700. Therefore the total cost for the SCMr program is $102,012. This is the amount international students must show on their Proof of Funding.


Financial Aid

The Supply Chain Management master's program is designed as a self-funded program. However, the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL) does provide a select few students with partial fellowships. To indicate your interest in CTL fellowships, please check the “Fellowship” box provided on the Financial Statement Form within the MIT Graduate Application.

Because of the intensive course load, SCM master's students are not eligible for research or teaching assistantships. Many domestic students depend on federal student loans and international students seek out student loans from private lenders. MIT's Student Financial Services Office is the best resource for determining how best to fund your MIT education. More information on financial assistance can be found on their website: http://web.mit.edu/sfs/.

SCM students are also eligible for grants and fellowships offered by the larger MIT community. Please visit the website of the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education for detailed information about these awards. Students are automatically considered for these awards based on their application materials. No additional application form is involved.
