MIT: Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyIAP: Independent Activities Period

For-Credit Subjects: Propose Subjects

Subjects offered for academic credit must be sponsored by an MIT academic department and must have faculty supervision. Be sure to consult the Dates and Deadlines in the About section for important IAP dates.

The official class schedule for subjects offered during IAP is published in the Online Subject Listing and Schedule, beginning the last week in November.

Please work with your department to list subjects with the MIT Registrar and with your department's scheduling coordinator to make sure all offered subjects have been reported to the Schedules Office, regardless of where the classes are meeting. This is essential to ensure that students will be able to register for the subject(s) of their choice during IAP. A list of scheduling coordinators is posted on the Registrar's website.
