Summer Academics Update

WPI has been continually working to mitigate the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak on our university community. Our top priority is the health and safety of our faculty, students, staff, and visitors, and WPI is making decisions following the guidance of local, state, national and international  health agencies.  WPI has not changed any summer academics as of now; we are monitoring the situation and will communicate with registrants as needed.  Please contact dboucher@wpi.edu or 508-831-6828 with any questions. Although we are working remotely, our department is fully operational and ready to assist you.  WPI’s response page, which includes answers to Frequently Asked Questions, is updated regularly with the latest statements or guidance from the university.
