Shadow a Wentworth Student

Admitted students are invited to campus for a Shadow Day! We match prospective students with current students in the same major of study. You will have the opportunity to attend up to three classes, dine on campus, and see what it is like to be a student at Wentworth.

Shadow visits are available January 28 - April 12, 2019.

Shadow visits are NOT available on the following dates:

  • February 18 - President’s Day
  • March 4-8 - Wentworth’s Spring Break
  • March 22 and April 5 - Accepted Student Days

For questions regarding the Shadow Program, please contact: 

  • Andrew deMelo at demeloa@wit.edu if you were accepted into Architecture or any Engineering program. 
  • Daniel Chadwick at chadwickd2@wit.edu if you were accepted into any other major. 


Submit your FAFSA

Make sure your Student Aid is ready to go. Submit your FAFSA by March 1 to meet our priority deadline. 

Remember to use Wentworth's school code 002225.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) takes place in June and is a two-day, overnight introduction to the Wentworth community where you will have the opportunity to meet other first-year students, staff and faculty.

2019 Orientation Dates: 

  • Session 1: June 13-14 (Thursday-Friday)
  • Session 2: June 17-18 (Monday-Tuesday)
  • Session 3: June 20-21 (Thursday-Friday)
  • Session 4: June 24-25 (Monday-Tuesday)

*Register for orientation will open in May.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are not required to attend New Student Orientation, though they are welcome to attend if interested. Instead, transfer students are invited to attend Transfer Orientation. During Transfer Orientation, students learn more about class registration, co-op, campus resources, and meet other transfer students. Communication via email will arrive over the summer inviting transfer students to register for Transfer Student Orientation. 

International Student Orientation 

We understand the high cost associated with international travel and therefore do not require our international students to attend New Student Orientation. However, International students are required to attend International Student Orientation & Wentworth Opening Week which take place late August.

Please email orientation@wit.edu with any questions related to any of the above orientation programs.
