WPI is happy to offer a Master’s Degree Tuition Incentive program for recent alumni to help make continuing your education a more attainable option for your future. Designed to help you complete your MS degree faster at a reduced cost, this program is available to you if you received your WPI bachelor’s degree within the last five years.

How Does the Program Work?

To participate in WPI’s alumni tuition incentive program, you have to be admitted and enrolled as a full-time student in one of WPI’s MS degree programs. In each semester of your first year of graduate study, you will pay for nine credits of course work, but you may register for as many as eighteen credits in each semester. In other words, you can take up to nine credits beyond the nine-credit, full-time threshold in each semester of your first year at no extra cost.

The Details

All eligible students are pre-coded to participate, so all you have to do is register for the courses you want. If you believe you are eligible but have been charged for extra courses, please contact the Bursar’s office.

The following restrictions apply:

  1. Students in the MBA program are not eligible.
  2. Students are only eligible during their first year of masters-level graduate study.
  3. Students are only eligible for two consecutive semesters, and they must begin in the fall.
  4. Funded students (TAs, RAs, etc.)  are not eligible.
