Step #1: Apply

First year candidates: Complete your application through the Common Application. Make sure you share who you are and what makes you a fit for WPI, and check over your answers. We encourage you to review our college application timeline checklist to put your best foot forward!

Transfer candidates: Complete the WPI Transfer Application. Make sure to also review important entrance and application requirements. Additional helpful information can also be found by reviewing frequently asked questions.

Step #2: Submit Additional Materials

Submit your additional, required materials in the Common Application or to the mailing address below.

  • School transcript
  • School counselor letter of recommendation
  • Teacher letter of recommendation (math or science teacher preferred)

Step #3: Submit Test Scores (optional)

WPI has a test-optional policy–note on the Common Application if you intend to submit SAT I or ACT test scores. You must register to take the tests prior to the deadline you plan to apply for, and you can self-report your test scores during the application process. If you decide to enroll at WPI, you will submit your official test scores then.

Step #4: Review Application

Once you submit your application, watch your email for a receipt from WPI. Check your status online to confirm you are not missing any information needed to review your application.
