Timeline. Financial matters are not a factor in the admissions process. Waiver decisions are made after the admissions process. As part of the application process, students are asked to indicate whether they want to be considered for financial aid. Decisions on partial tuition waivers will be announced by April 15, 2022.

Tuition Payment Schedule and Information

Tuition can be paid in a single payment (due by end of April- early May, 2022) or in two equal payments (due in April and November 2022). You will be asked whether you want to make one or two payments before the April invoice date. Unless we hear from you in this regard by April 24th, 2022, a single invoice will be issued. Once you have communicated to us your decision, this cannot be changed. It is possible for each invoice to be issued to the name of a third party (e.g. a relative, your employer or university) that will pay your tuition, as long as you notify us before the invoice is issued.

Tuition payment is made via international wire transfer. Wire fees and any other charges that result from the international transfer are to be covered by the student. Students from countries with limited availability of dollars are allowed to pay their tuition using a credit card.

Estimate of non-tuition costs for GCLOG

Besides the program tuition, each GCLOG student is responsible for covering all expenses associated to their residency periods on the MIT campus, including airfare, lodging, meals, insurance* and incidentals. For most students, these costs are between US$4,000 and US$13,000, with an average of US$8,600 per student for both sessions combined. 

Given the high cost of medical care in the U.S., GCLOG students will be required to submit proof of travel and medical insurance conforming to our requirements before they can join the seminars at MIT.
