Admissions Timeline

When to apply

Wentworth practices rolling admissions, which means applications are reviewed as they are received. The application priority deadline for completed applications is February 15. After this date, some programs may be closed to further applications, please check with the Admissions Office for space availability in the area of your interest. We recommend that you submit your application by February 15 if you will also be applying for financial aid.

Decision letters are typically mailed four to six weeks after a complete application is received. The first round of decision letters are generally mailed out in late November.

Transfer and international applicants applying for Fall 2016 should also keep the February 15 priority filing deadline in mind.  Please contact the Admissions Office with questions about the availability of particular majors.
