Student Summer Resources

Academic Advising

The role of the faculty advisor is to help their advisees design a program of study, which reflects the students’ interests and professional goals. They are also available to help their advisees choose among academic alternatives, interpret catalog requirements, and review degree audits and grade reports. Academic Advising, in turn, provides supplemental support to undergraduate students to help them create academic plans and reach their goals

Academic Resources Center

WPI’s Academic Resources Center (ARC) provides academic support services that are designed to enrich and enhance the learning experience of all WPI undergraduate students. In the ARC, you will find tutors and specialized support for math, science, and computer science courses, as well as a quiet place to study if you just need somewhere to think and do your work undisturbed.

Writing Center

The mission of the Writing Center is to work interactively with WPI students to improve written, oral, and visual communication. Our trained writing tutors provide individual and group peer tutoring on a range of projects including course papers, presentations, dissertations, and job-related documents. We hope to provide an approachable peer resource for students seeking assistance with their communication projects.

Start Expanded

From academic support to health and wellness services to specialized programs for international students and so much more, WPI is committed to making sure our students have the resources and support they need to thrive and succeed, both academically and personally.
