First-Year Students

Helping Students Realize Their Dream of a College Education

At WPI, we understand that while a private university education brings many benefits and rewards, its associated costs represent a significant investment for students and their families. WPI's Office of Financial Aid can help in a variety of ways.

The first step in applying for any type of financial assistance is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  form to determine your eligiblity for Federal financial aid assistance, and the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile to determine your eligiblity for WPI funded financial assistance.  All applicants — must submit the FAFSA if seeking federal aid and the CSS PROFILE if seeking institutional aid.  These forms can be accessed online:

    *Financial Aid applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis for students accepted under the Early Action Program. The sooner you file your 2014-15 CSS PROFILE Application, the sooner you will find out about your financial aid eligibility as an Early Action applicant. Please note that financial aid offers to students selected for verification (by either the Federal Department of Education or by the WPI Office of Financial Aid) are not final until your federal tax return transcripts, are submitted to and reviewed by the WPI Office of Financial Aid.
