Bidding Instructions:


1.       You have 1 bid point to select your preferred SIP Stream in Round I.


2.       If there are more bids than seats available, enrollment will be first determined by priority, then by random lottery. The closer you are to graduation, the higher your priority.


3.       If you do not get your first choice in Round I, you will be able to add a workshop during the Add/Drop round. The add/drop round is time sensitive!


4.       Students enrolled in the following do not need to bid on a SIP workshop; you will be automatically pre-enrolled in the corresponding SIP course:

a.       ES.189 China/India Lab (15.225)

b.      ES.227 Study Tours (15.228)

c.       ES.585 UK Finance Tour (15.S21)

d.      ES.580 E&I Study Tour

e.      ES.608 EM Track Hack-A-Thon


Important Reminders:


Waitlists will not be part of the SIP bidding process due to the brevity of the workshops.


You will not receive partial credit for any workshops partially attended. Students are expected to attend workshops in their entirety in order to gain credit for the course. This includes workshops that meet over multiple days.


Students may not complete the same SIP workshop twice and receive credit for both.
