    All application deadlines are non-binding, non-restrictive. Wentworth encourages you to apply when you feel ready to hit submit and all rounds are reviewed in the same way, there is simply a difference in timing for you as the applicant.

  • Official Transcripts

    An official high school transcript or G.E.D. scores. Please note that transcripts are considered official only if sent directly from your high school.

  • Recommendation Letters

    Letters of recommendation at Wentworth are optional.  If applicants would like to submit a letter of recommendation, we will accept up to two recommendations from guidance counselors, teachers, employers, or coaches. Email letters of recommendation to

  • Extracurricular Activities

    How you spend your time above and beyond academics is important to us! Be sure to include your participation in community service activities, athletic teams, employment and involvement in clubs and organizations, as well as any family commitments you may have.   

  • Prerequisites

    You must complete a mathematics course of study through the Algebra II level, at least one laboratory science course (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, or Physics), and four years of English. 

    Pre-Calculus is not a requirement for admission.  However, students applying for Applied Mathematics, Applied Sciences, Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Data Science or any Engineering program without pre-calculus, may have to take one summer course to complete their math sequence. 

  • Submitting Additional Documents

    Support materials from schools should be uploaded through the appropriate channels. Wentworth will be sure to match the documents to your application upon receipt. Any additional materials can be emailed to

  • Test Optional (SAT/ACT) Information

    Wentworth adopted a test-optional admissions policy in 2018 as part of its institutional commitment to inclusive excellence. We encourage students of all backgrounds to pursue their passions, especially in the science and engineering fields where women, students of color and first generation students have been historically underrepresented.  Below are some frequently asked questions to address questions you may have. If you do not see your questions addressed here, please feel free to contact us at or 617-989-4000. 

    All applicants are eligible for test optional admissions, with the exception of home-schooled applicants and applicants attending a high school that employs a narrative assessment of course performance and does not provide grades on a 4.0 scale.

    International students are not required to submit SAT/ACT scores but must show proof of English proficiency. Please see the English Proficiency Requirements.

    If you feel that your SAT/ACT scores will strengthen your application, then you should submit the scores. If you feel that the SAT/ACT scores are not a reflection of your academic ability and would prefer the admissions committee review your admissions file based on your high school performance, extracurricular activities, and personal qualities as evidenced in your essay and letter of recommendation then you may decide not to submit the scores.

    Regardless of submitting test scores, all accepted students are considered for merit scholarships based on overall academic performance. 

    Please note that students who do decide to submit test scores must submit those scores officially.  That means your scores need to come to us directly from the SAT/ACT or be submitted to us by your school.   If test scores have not arrived to Wentworth by the application decision deadline, we will review the application without the scores.
