Wellesley College Student UROP Deadlines


Wellesley College students must cross-register in advance before they are able to submit online UROP applications. Deadlines for both cross-registration and UROP application forms are provided below. Any questions or concerns about meeting these deadlines, should be addressed with UROP staff, ASAP. We can be reached via email to urop@mit.edu.

NOTE: Be sure to to complete your I-9 form with MIT, if you have not done so already, before you begin work for a paid UROP.  Everyone working in the U.S., regardless of their citizenship, must complete this federal form on or before their first day of work. See the I-9 form section of the Human Resources website for complete information.  

For the 2021-22 academic year proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to access MIT's campus. Unvaccinated students will be unable to work in-person and access MIT's campus..  Note that students on leave from Wellesley are not eligible to participate in MIT UROP.  Wellesley students who do not meet all each of the deadlines listed below will not be able to UROP at MIT during that term. 

Due to international tax and compliance issues, MIT is not able to offer paid UROPs or other hourly wage opportunities (regardless of funding source) to undergraduate students who are not physically located in the United States. Wellesley students living abroad will only be able to pursue UROP for Volunteer.
