The WPI Office of Student Aid & Financial Literacy wants to provide WPI students and community members with information regarding building financial knowledge. Here, you will find resources about better understanding your finances and assisting with making informed decisions, both during college and after graduation.

In addition, we offer workshops and events throughout the year aimed at understanding personal finance, such as “ID Theft & Credit Repair,”  “Homebuyer Workshop,”  “Student Loans: What You Need to Know About Repayment," and more.
