Entrance Requirements and Recommendations


WPI requires a high school transcript, four years of high school math (including pre-calculus) and 2 lab sciences. Applicants may submit either the SAT I or the ACT, or they may submit alternative materials through WPI's Flex Path option. Students who choose the Flex Path are encouraged to submit examples of academic work or extracurricular projects that reflect a high level of organization, motivation, creativity and problem solving ability. A recommendation from a math or science teacher and the guidance counselor at the secondary level is also required for admission, as is a personal essay.
