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

Wellesley College undergraduates must cross-register for UROPs each semester.

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 and formal UROP application submission below. 

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.


If you are a Wellesley international student choosing to pursue a paid research opportunity through MIT UROP, please consult with the Slater International Center to obtain proper off-campus work authorization  at least 2 weeks before beginning any paid research opportunity at MIT.

After cross-registering you may need to submit your online UROP application well before the term’s application deadline in order to get lab access (many labs want to verify UROP status before granting access).
