Early Action First-Year Students

Applying Early Action to WPI means that you’ll be notified of your admission decision before other applicants, and you can apply for and receive financial aid early. WPI’s Early Action plan is non-binding, which means you have until May 1 to decide whether or not to attend WPI and confirm your acceptance with a nonrefundable $500 tuition deposit.

What happens if I'm not admitted Early Action?

In most cases the Early Action decision is final (admit or deny). However, if the Admissions Committee believes your application deserves reconsideration later in the year, it may be deferred into the regular application pool. If you are deferred, your application will be re-evaluated along with regular decision candidates and you will receive a final admissions decision on or before April 1.
