Summer Academics Update

In light of the extraordinary changes Covid-19 has brought to WPI and beyond, we are moving forward in multiple ways to support your educational goals.

  • We have deepened the discount on ALL undergraduate courses from 30% to 50% for summer 2020
  • We have pushed the summer schedule back one week (summer term will begin May 26, 2020)
  • We have made the decision to push all summer classes online - online courses run asynchronously and so date and time will not be listed

Session I (5/26-7/9): If you’re a high school student looking to enroll in a course being offered during Session I, reach out to ugsummer@wpi.edu so we can help you complete the process. ​

Session II (7/13-8/14): High school students interested in taking online summer courses at WPI in Session II can check out the Frontiers For Credit program for more information on course offerings, free programming for high school students, procedures, and registration.​

Flexible online experiences offered in two summer sessions!

Make the most of your college experience – stay on track, do a co-op, graduate early!

Summer sessions at WPI allow you to immerse yourself in one or more courses you need to complete, want to try, or need the dedicated time to master.

Courses are offered in two sessions: a seven-week session that begins shortly after the conclusion of the WPI academic year; and a five-week session that ends in early August. With the options of taking one or more online classes—not to mention a 50% discount on every undergraduate summer session course—the summer schedule offers flexibility and multiple options to meet your distinct goals.

Session 1 (7 weeks): May 26-July 9, 2020
Session 2 (5 weeks): July 13-August 14, 2020
