  • Because different houses handle billing differently and are at different points in their housebill collection process, MIT will work with each group.
  • Reimbursements will go from MIT to the house corporations, and the house corporations will work with the student members to provide refunds or credits as appropriate.
  • House corporations should fill out the form here to begin the reimbursmeent process.
