Take Advantage of Available Options
Transfer students may be eligible for need based scholarship and loan funds from a variety of sources including WPI, the federal government and some state government agencies.
To apply for need based aid transfer students need to complete the CSS PROFILE (WPI school code 3969) to be considered for WPI funded financial asssistance and the FAFSA (WPI school code 002233) to be considered for Federal financial aid funds.
UPDATE: FSA ID to Replace PIN Starting May 10, 2015: Changes will be made to how applicants and parents authenticate their identities within Federal Student Aid Web sites that currently use the PIN. Rather than entering his or her Social Security Number, name, date of birth and PIN to perform functions such as starting a renewal FAFSA, signing a FAFSA, making FAFSA corrections, or accessing the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, a user will enter a new FSA ID. In addition to eliminating the need to provide personally identifiable information (PII) to access FSA systems, the new FSA ID, which consists of a user name and password, will resolve the issue of multiple PIN assignments for one individual when identifiers change due to life circumstances and improve self-help options for the user by providing password retrieval by e-mail.
The deadlines for filing these applications are:
|Application Type||CSS PROFILE Application||FAFSA||Noncustodial PROFILE (If applicable)|
|Transfer Students - Fall Enrollment||April 15, 2015||April 15, 2015||April 15, 2015|
|Transfer Students - Spring Enrollment||November 15, 2015||November 15, 2015||November 15, 2015|
(Note that no WPI need based or merit based scholarships can exceed WPI’s tuition.)
