Admitted and Incoming Graduate Students

We are very excited to welcome you to our diverse graduate student community of students, researchers, and faculty. Please review the information throughout this site for information that is applicable to graduate students including, academics, health and safety, student life, and international student concerns. You will continue to receive bi-weekly emails from the Graduate Studies office with the most current information to assist you with planning for fall. 

We understand it may be challenging for some students to travel to campus this fall and that others may prefer to learn remotely. WPI has offered graduate courses through distance, remote, and online learning delivery for over 40 years. This has proven to be an effective delivery method for many graduate courses—facilitating successful learning outcomes, while offering flexible schedules for students and faculty. We expect most graduate courses will be offered through asynchronous online/remote learning this fall. Visit the Academics section of this site for more information regarding learning options. New Student Orientation will also be held fully online for incoming graduate students.

Should your plans change for the fall, please be sure to contact the Graduate Studies office for assistance or to inquire about options to defer to spring or next fall.
