Wellesley College Students

Wellesley College students are eligible to UROP provided that they are cross-registered at MIT for each term in which their UROPs take place.

Important Information for Wellesley College Students

During the 2021-22 academic year, MIT will allow vaccinated Wellesley College undergraduate to cross-register for in person UROPs.

To access MIT’s campus students Wellesley students will need to upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination into MIT COVIDpass – see detailed instructions for cross-registration (required no later than by March 4 for Spring UROPS) and formal UROP application submission below. 

Wellesley students can only cross-register at MIT for one UROP position, either paid (sponsored research), credit or volunteer. Wellesley is allowing students to register for academic credit for one course.

For details on funding resources that Wellesley College makes available to their students (in the event your faculty supervisor does not have funds for you) – details can be found on the Wellesley College Science Center Student Research and Funding Opportunities page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: After cross-registering for summer (due no later than 6.6.22), you will likely need to submit your formal online UROP application well before the final summer application deadline (6.22.22)  in order to get lab access – as many departments will want to verify UROP status before granting access.
