Transfer Students

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 applicable), federal and state resources, and WPI itself.

Beginning with transfer students admitted for fall 2024, merit scholarships and need-based aid will be available for both domestic & international, full-time undergraduate transfer students. Part-time students are not eligible for WPI merit or need-based funding, though part-time domestic students may be eligible for federal and/or state financial aid funding.

All students applying to WPI are automatically evaluated for merit-based scholarships. 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
