Students & Parents

Project Lead The Way offers high school students a unique opportunity...students who have passed minimum requirements and are part of a certified PLTW high school can obtain college credit for their PLTW courses!

Current WPI students who completed a PLTW course in a PLTW-certified high school, received a minimum of a "B" in the course, and earned a stanine score of 6 or higher on the PLTW end-of-course exam are eligible for WPI undergraduate credit, free of charge.  WPI course equivalents have already been identified for Introduction to Engineering Design (IED), Principles of Engineering (POE), Civil Engineering & Architecture (CEA), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), and Digital Electronics (DE).  As deemed appropriate, WPI also accepts PLTW transfer credits from other PLTW Affiliate Universities (RIT and others). 

If you have questions about WPI's policy for PLTW credit, please contact Terry Adams.  WPI students interested in obtaining credit for having excelled in PLTW courses should also email Terry (
