The IMGD program at WPI strongly values the creativity and skill of its students. To ensure the passions of students truly shine, WPI offers the Flex Path, a test-optional course for applicants to the university. This can be especially attractive to our art students. In lieu of (or in addition to) submitting SAT and ACT scores, students can submit their art and design portfolio for consideration.
Students should submit their best original work that tells a story of creativity, passion, and ability, plus experimentation and breadth. While portfolios need not specifically address the IMGD discipline, it will help to submit samples in that field, particularly of 2-D and 3-D works that show a grasp of artistic techniques and principles. Here at WPI, your grades do not reflect you; your passion does, and we can’t wait to see it.
