You’re a #WITADMIT! Now what?

Accepted Student Day

The Wentworth community invites you to join us on campus for Accepted Student Day on one of the following dates:

At Accepted Student Day you will:

  • Hear from faculty and discover more about your academic major
  • Tour campus and visit our residence halls
  • Interact with current students and get their perspective on Wentworth
  • Meet your future classmates in the Fall 2020 entering class
  • Learn more about co-op, student activities, residence life, athletics, and more

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 27 - April 10, 2020.

Shadow visits are NOT available on the following dates:

  • February 17 - President’s Day
  • March 9-13 - Wentworth’s Spring Break
  • March 20 and April 3 - Accepted Student Days

For questions regarding the Shadow Program, please contact: 

  • Daniel Chadwick at chadwickd2@wit.edu if you were accepted into Architecture or any Engineering program. 
  • Andrew deMelo at demeloa@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 February 15 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.

2020 Orientation Dates: 

  • Session 1: TBD
  • Session 2: TBD
  • Session 3: TBD
  • Session 4: TBD

*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.
