As a parent of a WPI student,  you want to stay up-to-date about everything from registrar’s deadlines to campus events, and we understand that. We'll help you stay in touch and connected with resources at your fingertips. 

If at any time you are concerned about your student, contact the WPI Care Team for assistance.

Stay in Touch with Campus Happenings

The Parents & Friends Newsletter is sent out six times each academic year and is full of campus, student, and faculty news. Whether there is an upcoming event, an important deadline, or a cool student project, the newsletter is designed to keep parents current with all that is happening at WPI.  If you are not receiving the newsletter, be sure to subscribe. 

Global Opportunities and Safety

Through our Global Projects Program, students travel to 40+ off-campus locations across 6 continents. They have the opportunity to immerse themselves in new cultures and impact local communities as they tackle real-life problems. To ensure safety abroad, we have programs and resources to help in travel planning and preparations including pre-departure orientations,  instructional handbooks for each location, off-campus emergency response procedures, and more.

Parent Portal

The WPI Parent Portal allows a parent or legal guardian to have access to view academic and billing information.  All parent portal accounts must be initiated by the student.  Access and use instructions are available for parents and students.

The Cluttered World of College Rankings

With all the college ranking lists available to read, which ones can parents trust? Kristin Tichenor, WPI senior vice president for enrollment and institutional strategy, cautions that all rankings are not created equal—and that those metrics that align with the university's strategic priories are most notable and valuable.
