WPI has many resources, events, services, and offices that help parents navigate WPI to find the information they need. We offer programs designed to help your student succeed, both academically and in their out-of-class life. Share these resources with your student if they need some guidance.
Parents and families will receive grade reports from the Registrar's Office at the end of B and D terms of each academic year. If you have other questions, ask your student directly. The Office of Academic Advising can discuss limited issues with parents according to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), but we will do our best to address your concerns.
In addition to helping your son or daughter with their arrival to campus, our New Student Orientation program has parents and friends sessions, too. Learn about all your child will do and your role as the parent of a college student at WPI.
First-year students have a great support network through the Insight Program, which consists of a Faculty Advisor, Community Advisor, and a Resident Advisor. This team is in place to help your student with personal and academic issues that may arise during their transition to college.
