Wentworth Institute of Technology welcomes a diverse and talented incoming class each and every year. Students seeking technology-focused careers and who appreciate the role of technology in society find their way to the Wentworth campus in the heart of Boston.
The February 15th priority deadline for Fall 2013 applicants has passed, and certain majors could close at any time. If you have any questions about applying to a specific major, please contact the Admissions Office at (617) 989-4000 to discuss your options.
Please note: Submission of the application does not guarantee available space in your chosen major. If a program closes, only applications that are complete, with all supporting documents, will be reviewed for admission. If your program closes before your application is complete, you will be given the opportunity to switch your application to another open major.
