WPI is taking measures in response to the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Get the latest information.

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.

Flexible online and on-campus options 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. Take advantage of perks like ice cream socials, a summer concert series, and plentiful parking as you complete your coursework in smaller classes with a calm, relaxed campus atmosphere conducive to learning.

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 classes with a variety of times and locations—not to mention a 30% discount on every undergraduate summer session course (WPI students repeating certain classes may qualify for a 50% tuition discount)—the summer schedule offers flexibility and multiple options to meet your distinct goals.

Session 1 (7 weeks): May 18-July 2, 2020
Session 2 (5 weeks): July 13-August 14, 2020
