Applying for financial aid for the first time can seem a bit intimidating at first, but don’t worry – we’re here to help you through the process!

After you submit your application for admission to WPI, your next step is to file your Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to determine your eligibility for federal aid and the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile to determine your eligibility for WPI- funded financial assistance. Both are due by the due dates listed below.

Both forms will require 2018 tax year information. We strongly encourage families to use the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) in the FAFSA to assist in completing that form with accurate income information.

You will need the following codes to submit your forms online:

  • FAFSA: WPI school code 002233
  • CSS Profile: WPI school code 3969
