English Language Proficiency Requirement
Applicants seeking to attend WPI whose native language it not English must submit official TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo scores.
Most programs require a minimum TOEFL score of 84, IELTS score of 7, or Duolingo score of 115. The minimum band score for IELTS is 6.5.
The Business Masters programs require a minimum TOEFL score of 90, IELTS score of 7, or Duolingo score of 115. The Business PHD program requires a minimum TOEFL score of 100 or IELTS score of 7.5.
The English proficiency test score requirement is waived for applicants who have either completed two years of full-time, continuous study in a college or university in the U.S., the U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, or the Anglophone regions of Africa, Canada, and the Caribbean within five years of matriculating at WPI or been in the U.S. for three or more years working. View English speaking countries.
WPI accepts the TOEFL home test. We will not accept paper IELTS test report forms.
Several WPI programs require or strongly recommend the GRE. Please review the application requirements page to identify if the test is required. There are no minimum GRE scores, but the average for admitted students is typically 150 verbal, 165 quantitative, and 3.0 analytical.
Contact ETS and have your scores released to us if they are required. Our institution code is 3969, and all departments use the same code.
