WTP summer session begins with weekend Orientation activities at MIT.  Students will have required activities at MIT on weekdays, including some evenings and weekend activities, for the four weeks WTP is in session. They should not have any other significant time commitments during that time.

Daily classes will occur Mon - Fri from approximatly 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM, with occasional evening hours (dinner included). We are planning some weekend academic field trips and social outings.  

Financial assistance with daily public transportation commuting costs to MIT may be offered to admitted students if these expenses constitute a hardship for their family. WTP cannot provide any financial assistance for local housing costs.
