Welcome Parents of Accepted Students!
Do you have questions about the WPI experience as a parent? WPI Parent volunteers will answer your questions about WPI, sending your child away to school, and the experiences during their student’s time on campus. Send them your questions using our Ask a Parent! online form and they will respond within 24 hours.
Interested in chatting with current WPI parents LIVE?
Don’t miss out on the chance to talk with parents of current WPI students about the WPI experience. Admissions staff members will also be available to answer any questions you may have. Ask for advice, share your experiences, and exchange tips – all online, from any device. Please note: chats will not be recorded or shared.
March 10, 2021 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT) - this session is now closed
April 22, 2021 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT) - this session is now closed
April 28, 2021 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT) - this session is now closed
Best practice tip: As we have limited volunteers assisting with these live chats, they have a tendency to be busy events. To improve your wait time to speak with a WPI representative, we recommend that guests stagger their entrances into the chat, instead of everyone logging on right at the beginning. This will ensure less wait time for all and more time for questions to be answered throughout the event.
