The Office of Undergraduate Admission assists students and families as they learn more about Wentworth and navigate the college application process. 

Admissions Counselors are assigned to specific high schools and work with all applicants from those schools. The assignments are based on the area in which your high school is located. All counselors are offering one-on-one virtual meetings. Simply find your counselor below from the state and/or county your high school is located and follow their appointment link. * PLEASE NOTE: some members of the staff oversee a specific region of California, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania. Please be sure to contact our office to identify your specific admissions contact.

For general information, please contact our office at 617-989-4000 or admissions@wit.edu and our staff will be happy to assist you!
