At WPI, we recognize that the cost of a private university education represents a significant investment for WPI students and their families, but it is one we're confident will bring many benefits and rewards. Financial aid at WPI draws on the combined resources of the student, their family (if applcicable), federal and state resources, and WPI itself.
Financial aid is available for domestic, full-time undergraduate transfer students. Part-time students are not eligible for WPI merit or need-based funding, but may be eligible for federal and/or state financial aid funding. Financial aid is not available for international (non-U.S. citizen) transfer students.
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.
You will also need the following codes to submit your forms online:
- FAFSA: WPI school code 002233
- CSS Profile: WPI school code 3969
