The WPI Summer Programs Office strives to provide a safe, secure, educational and fun environment for our summer programs participants. In order to achieve this, we ask that all parents, guardians and participants acknowledge the policies below:
Code of Conduct
The Summer Programs Office will issue a full refund for program cancellations made at least 2 weeks prior to the program start date. However, as we often have wait lists for our programs, we respectfully request that you notify us of your cancellation as soon as possible, so that we may offer your spot to a wait list registrant.
Absences, Late Arrival and Early Dismissal
In the event that your child will be absent from, or will arrive late to, an academic day program, please contact the Summer Programs Office at 508-831-4900 to notify us. If you need to make arrangements for an early dismissal, please speak with our staff at the morning check-in so that we can make arrangements for you. All late arrivals must report to directly to the Bartlett Center to be met by a Summer Staff member. All early dismissals will be escorted to the Bartlett Center by a Summer Staff member to be picked up by a parent, guardian, or other authorized adult.
In the event that your child will be absent, arriving late, or leaving early from a sports camp, please contact the Athletics Office at 508-831-5243 to make arrangements directly with the Athletics department and coaching staff.
Tuition Assistance Award Policy
The Summer Programs Office has a limited number of need-based partial tuition assistance awards for students who register or apply for eligible programs. It is our mission to make attendance possible for students who are interested in STEM fields, but would otherwise be unable to attend solely due to the cost of the program. These awards will be distributed on a weekly basis to qualifying applicants until the funds are depleted, and it is our intention to distribute them across all eligible day and overnight programs. For additional details, please read our full Tuition Assistance Award Policy.
For registration camps
Registration for programs that do not require an application is offered on a first come/first served basis. Both registration and payment are required for the participant to be enrolled in these programs. All courses and programs are subject to change without prior notice. Grades indicate the grade that the student will enter in the fall of 2014. Programs include lunch, materials, a t-shirt or drawstring bag, admission to field trips and transportation unless specifically noted otherwise.
For application camps
These programs require the interested party to submit an application, and in some cases, other documentation. Submission of an application does not represent acceptance. Participants will be notified of their status of acceptance. Registration and documentation are required for the participant to be considered for enrollment in these programs.
All courses and programs are subject to change without prior notice. Grades indicate the grade that the student will enter in the fall of 2014.
