Parent Admissions Information

Meet Wentworth's Executive Director of Admissions, Maureen Dischino.

Admissions Process

Wentworth practices rolling admissions. Our priority application deadline is February 15th, and after this date majors could reach capacity, so applying sooner rather than later is recommended. High school students can apply any time after the beginning of their senior year and once all their application requirements are received, their completed application is reviewed and they can expect a response in 4 to 5 weeks. Deposit deadline is May 1 for all students.


Wentworth currently offers 19 undergraduate programs. Students applying to Wentworth choose a specific academic program as part of the admissions process.  All of the Engineering Majors and the Computer Science major requires students to have taken or be taking a Pre-Calculus class.  Minimum requirements for our Engineering programs include at least a 550 in the math portion of the SAT (alternatively a 24 in the math section of the ACT) and Pre-Calculus.  Engineering Technology programs, on the other hand, do not have these requirements.

What is the difference between Engineering and Engineering Technology?

Engineering programs tend to be more math-intensive and include higher level mathematics than the Engineering Technology programs

Engineering programs are more theory based and engineering technology programs are a mix of theory and application

In the workforce, engineering graduates (engineers) typically spend their time planning, whereas engineering technology graduates (technologists) spend their time making plans work.

Tuition, Laptop and Scholarships

The 2013-2014 Annual Tuition is $27,950 and the Room & Board is $12,550.

Wentworth provides all first year students with a brand new laptop. The cost of the laptop is included in tuition. Each laptop is outfitted with the complete suite of software used in the student’s academic program. Students keep their laptop once they graduate.

Wentworth offers academic merit scholarships to freshman applicants based upon academic performance, standardized test scores, leadership, extracurricular involvement, and community service. All admitted applicants are automatically considered and there is no separate application required. These scholarships vary in amounts, but typically range between $1,000 and $17,000, and are renewable for four years.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education programs in the country, Wentworth is uniquely qualified to help your students start their future now. Our Co-op program allows students to join their classroom study with paid supervised work experiences in the public and private sector. Wentworth students acquire essential practical skills by being exposed to the reality of the world of work beyond the boundaries of the campus, enhancing their self-confidence and career direction. The program provides the individual attention students need to secure exciting, rewarding, and most importantly, relevant positions in their field of study. In addition the Career Center offers resume and cover letter critiquing and is a lifelong service.

With one of the largest and most comprehensive

A survey of the graduating class of 2013, showed that 96% had found employment in their field, or were attending graduate school, within six months of graduating. The average starting salary for these students was $51,564.

Student Resources

Wentworth offers a variety of resources for students to help make their transition from high school to college smoother.

Colleges of the Fenway

One of Boston’s largest academic collaborations, the Colleges of the Fenway consists of six neighboring schools: Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, Simmons College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, and Wheelock College, all of which have come together to enrich and expand the academic and social opportunities for their undergraduate students. The collaboration allows students at the colleges to cross-register for courses, share educational resources, attend joint social activities, intramural sports, clubs, study abroad, and performing arts opportunities.
