Financial Aid
International Education Low Residency, Summer 2014 April 15, 2014 Students must submit their enrollment deposit within 2 weeks of financial aid award notification.


If you have not yet applied for financial aid, this is an important next step.  If you do not intend to apply for financial aid, please notify your admissions officer directly or contact

Financial Aid applications and instructions:

For US Citizens and Permanent Residents
To secure your place in the incoming class, you must complete and return the Enrollment Form  with your $400 non-refundable deposit payment within two weeks of your financial award notification. The deposit may be submitted through our online application system or by completing the Credit Card Authorization Form below.

For International Students
Because international students in SIT's low residency MA programs must pay their first semester tuition and fees as part of their student visa process, SIT does not require the $400 deposit payment for international students in these programs. Instead, international students in SIT's low residency MA programs in TESOL and international education should review the information concerning student visas and focus their efforts on completing the necessary steps to obtain their I-20 and student visa.

On-Campus Housing

For students who wish to live on-campus during your residency, the Housing Deposit form and $100 deposit payment are required.
