Welcome Accepted Students

Effective immediately through April 30, 2020, to limit the opportunity for virus transmission, Wentworth Institute of Technology is canceling all Admissions events and tours.  We are seeking ways to conduct events and meetings virtually whenever possible.

Virtual Accepted Student Day

Congratulations on being accepted to Wentworth! We cannot wait to have you join our action-oriented community of doers, makers, and creators. This spring, we would like nothing more than to welcome you to campus. In light of all that is happening, we will no longer have the March 20, April 3, or April 4 on-campus events. Instead, we moved this experience online. Whether you have already decided to attend Wentworth or are still considering your options, this program is made just for you! On our page, you’ll be able to access on-demand content covering academic overviews, campus support services, student and alumni testimonials, and a tour. 

Schedule a Financial Aid Appointment

 

The Wentworth Financial Aid Office is pleased to offer you guidance on understanding your financial aid package and payment options.

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.

2020 Orientation Dates: 

  • Session 1: June 15-16
  • Session 2: June 18-19
  • Session 3: June 22-23
  • Session 4: June 25-26

*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.
