About IAP: Appropriateness of Activities
- IAP activities are for members of the MIT Community (i.e. students, faculty, staff, and alums). Activities should not be opened to non-MIT individuals, nor should they be advertised as such.
- Profit-making or promotional events for a private enterprise are not appropriate IAP activities, and will not be listed in the online IAP Guide.
- Advertising IAP offerings in MIT publications such as The Tech is acceptable. Off-campus advertising, newspaper listings, or posting notices outside the MIT campus is not appropriate.
- All subject and activity descriptions submitted to the online IAP Guide will be reviewed for appropriateness by the Office of the Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming (UAAP) before appearing online.
Standards for Activities
- Inclusion of a non-credit activity in the online IAP Guide does not imply MIT endorsement.
- Responsibility for a non-credit activity lies with the sponsoring MIT individual or group, not the UAAP.
- All activities are required to meet safety, health, legal and general regulations governing the use of MIT facilities.
- The online MIT Bulletin lists policies concerning credit, tuition, food, housing, veterans' benefits, special students, and student exchanges. They should be reviewed by students and faculty involved in IAP activities.
