International Application: Special Instructions
E-signing and Document Collection: The e-signing option is not available for International Applicants - International Students MUST sign documents in person upon arrival in the United States. Since International Students need to sign documents in person, each student is encouraged to make an appointment with MIT Federal Credit Union to sign required loan paperwork. During this time, required documents will be collected (Visa, Passport, I-94, other specified documents) and contact information will be updated (Address, phone number, references, etc.). It is advised that applicants also establish their required MIT Federal Credit Union membership and open desired accounts during this meeting. Appointments may be made by contacting Raffaela Pixton, MIT Federal Credit Union Student Loan Representative, at 617-324-8189 or

You will also provide your reference’s contact information at this time. Copies of this form will be available in our branch.
