MIT Remote Appointment Guidance For Spring 2022
The Office of the Vice Chancellor announced that MIT guidance on in-person learning and remote appointments for Fall 2021 will continue for the Spring 2022 semester. Students are expected to be physically on-campus in Spring 2022 for in-person learning and conduct their U.S.-based appointments (including research and teaching assistantships) from inside the U.S.
As in Fall 2021, there will be limited exceptions process for those who encounter “absolute barriers” preventing their return to the U.S. for the Spring 2022 semester due to the pandemic (e.g. visa delays, travel restrictions). Guidance on eligibility and how to request consideration for a remote appointment for Spring 2022 is provided in the announcement.
Students who will be traveling are also reminded about the MIT vaccination requirements as well as new U.S. federal government requirements on vaccination and testing in order to enter the U.S. from abroad, which is also referenced in the announcement.
