Transferring Credit Before Matriculation to WPI
After a student has been accepted and final transcripts received, the Office of Admissions coordinates the formal evaluation of credit accepted towards a WPI degree. Please note that the review process for first year student credit evaluation requests will begin after the May 1st enrollment deadline. The review process for accepted transfer students begins typically in mid-April. Students must follow the instructions on the Undergraduate Transfer Credit Review Request Form (PDF) to begin the course evaluation process. Courses must be taken at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution. More specifically, courses must be completed on a college campus taught by college instructors. Early college, early entrance programs, or coursework provided in partnership with a college or university but offered at the high school and taught by high school teachers are not eligible for credit at WPI (with the exception of Project Lead the Way (www.wpi.edu/+pltw). These high school to college partnership programs include Running Start, ECE, EEP, SUPA, SUNY UHS, and others. Additional courses that are not transferable include pre-calculus, non-calculus based physics, computer courses in BASIC. Online coursework is also typically not eligible. Also, non-credit CEU courses, adult enrichment or refresher course, and CLEP examinations are not recognized for transfer credit. Additional information on credit eligibility can be found on the Admissions website.
