Thinking about Transferring to Wentworth?

Finding the right school is all about fit—with your character, personality, learning style and your academic and career goals. You might not have found it the first time around, but we're confident you'll find a home among the creators and makers here at Wentworth. Our goal is to attract innovative, motivated students and set you on a pathway to make a difference in the world.


What We Look For

When evaluating transfer applicants, we look at two important criteria:

  • Academic achievement – We look at both high school and college transcripts; a typical admitted transfer student at Wentworth has an average GPA of 3.0 or better.
  • Personal qualities – Through a candidate’s personal statement or essay, and interests and activities, we look for those who are motivated to succeed in their chosen field.

Wentworth allows you to transfer credits for courses you have already taken. We review each course on an individual basis to determine if it is applicable and acceptable. Credits will be transferred only for courses with a grade of C or better. You must complete 50% of your curriculum at Wentworth in order to graduate.


A Message from the Transfer Admissions Team

The Fall 2021 application is now closed. We will have additional information about available programs for Spring 2022 entrance for transfer students in early Fall. Should you have any questions, please contact our office at or at 781-989-4000.
