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. 
  • Josselyn Guzman at guzmanj4@wit.edu if you were accepted into any other major. 

*Registration for the 2019 accepted student shadow days will be available in early January. 

Submit your FAFSA

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

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.

2018 New Student Orientation Dates

  • Session 1: June 14-15 (Thursday-Friday)
  • Session 2: June 18-19 (Monday-Tuesday)
  • Session 3: June 22-23 (Friday-Saturday)
  • Session 4: June 25-26 (Monday-Tuesday)

*Deposited students will receive an email to register for orientation.

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 on August 1, 2018. 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 Wentworth Opening Week and International Student Orientation. International Student Orientation takes place August 30-31

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