UROP Deadlines


Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, most Fall 2020 UROPs will be remote experiences. Only MIT undergraduates who live on-campus in the fall may participate in in-person UROPs if the research project meets all safety and public health requirements; can be conducted within the confines of MIT’s limited campus space constraints; and has approval from the faculty sponsor/PI. All students must use our Fall 2020 proposal template and will need to complete the UROP Remote Location Form for Fall 2020.

Students must submit an online UROP application each term/summer they participate in UROP, even if continuing from a prior semester.  Students must submit online UROP applications to faculty supervisors for review no later than the applicable deadline dates listed in this section by term and proposal type.​ Students conducting UROPs for academic credit, must also be sure to register credit with the Registrar by the registration deadlines indicated for each term.  Students must submit an online UROP application each term/summer they participate in UROP, even if continuing from a prior semester.  

Any questions or concerns about UROP processes (finding a project, writing a proposal, submitting an application, etc.) or meeting these deadlines, should be addressed with UROP staff, ASAP. We can be reached via email to urop@mit.edu, by phone at 617-253-7306.
