Financial Aid

We aim to support all students with financial need. We offer loans, grants, scholarships, awards, tuition waivers, and work-study positions that can help offset the cost of tuition. 

Most aid is need-based and requires filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA: financial aid application for eligible US citizens) or the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA: financial aid application for eligible non-citizen Washington residents).

Incoming MiT students starting as graduate students: in addition to submitting a FAFSA or WASFA for the 2023-2024 academic year, you will need to submit one for the 2022-2023 academic year as soon as you can to ensure you can apply for aid for your first quarter at MiT. Reach out to MiT Assistant Director Luis Apolaya Torres ( with questions or concerns.

Evergreen’s financial aid priority deadline for the 2023-2024 academic year is February 1, 2023, meaning your official FAFSA or WASFA must be received AND processed no later than February 1. If you are submitting a FAFSA, your FAFSA cannot be rejected by the Processor for any reason to be considered official, and must include Evergreen’s school code 008155.

While FAFSA or WASFA forms can be submitted after February 1, applicants may not qualify for as much aid as on-time filers. 

FAFSA applications received after February 1st will not be considered for Evergreen Need Grants or available tuition waivers, but will still be considered for scholarships and loans. WASFA eligible students will only be reviewed for Washington State funding resources and are not eligible for federal loan aid. Students who submit their WASFA and meet the February 1st deadline will be considered for the Evergreen Need Grant, tuition waivers, scholarships and fellowships. 

For questions about the FAFSA or WASFA, student loans, or Evergreen Need Grants, please contact our Financial Aid Office at or (360) 867-6205. For specific questions about MiT scholarships, please contact MiT Assistant Director Luis Apolaya Torres at
