Starting Your Application

This interactive application checklist will help you stay organized when gathering documents for your application. Start your WPI graduate application by clicking on the link below. You don’t need to complete the application in one sitting. After you submit your application you will not be able to make changes.  If you have questions along the way, please contact us at grad@wpi.edu. For Business School-specific questions contact business@wpi.edu.

IMPORTANT: Do not mail any documents to WPI.

All required credentials should be provided electronically through the application. Paper documents mailed to our office will be discarded.

The minimum TOEFL score for science and engineering applicants whose native language is not English is 84, ideally with no subscore below 20.  The minimum total IELTS score is 7.0 with no band score below 6.5. WPI Business School application requirements are below.

If applicants have two continuous years of full-time, university-level study completed within the last five years, in a country where the official language is English, he or she can request a TOEFL/IELTS waiver.  Students who have studied at a school where the language of instruction is English, but the official language of the country is not English do not qualify for a waiver (e.g., study at the American University in Cairo, Egypt, does not qualify a student for the TOEFL waiver).  

TOEFLS and IELTS are also waived for individuals who have been in the US for three or more years working.

There are no minimum GRE scores, but the average for admitted students is typically 150 verbal, 165 quantitative, and 3.0 analytical. 

WPI only accepts official test scores from the GMAT, GRE, or TOEFL. Please contact the ETS and have your scores released to us if they are required. Our institution code is 3969, and all departments use the same code.

WPI downloads IELTS scores that have been transmitted to our e-download account. We will not accept paper IELTS test report forms. Please contact your test center and request that your scores be sent to the following IELTS e-download account:
