MIT Professional Education fully expects to hold on-campus Short Programs courses during the Summer of 2023. However, we recognize the possibility of ongoing disruption and related restrictions at the global, national, regional, and local levels due to COVID-19.

For the safety of the MIT community – faculty, staff, students, researchers, visitors, and suppliers – MIT Professional Education follows the requirements outlined by the Institute for access to the MIT campus and buildings. Please note this may include proof of vaccination, on-site testing, daily health attestations, mask wearing, participation in a digital visitor pass system, and other requirements.

In the event a course cannot be held in person on the MIT campus, MIT Professional Education reserves the right to run courses in a live virtual format providing the high-caliber experience our participants have come to expect. If you register for an on-campus course that needs to change to a live virtual format, you will receive an email from our Short Programs team six to eight weeks prior to the course start date outlining next steps to attend the course via Zoom or other virtual platform. If a course does change delivery format, our cancellation policies remain the same.

In the unlikely event of a course cancellation, the Short Programs office strives to announce cancellations at least two weeks in advance for our live virtual courses and four weeks in advance for our on-campus courses. Payment will be refunded, but MIT Professional Education is not liable for travel expenses.
