I’m a #WITADMIT! What Happens Next?

January 20, 2017

If you have received your acceptance to Wentworth, congratulations! We are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to welcome the class of 2021! Many of you are probably wondering what happens after you officially receive your acceptance to Wentworth. We have comprised a timeline of “next steps” in the admission and decision-making process.

Priority Deadline: Wentworth operates on rolling admissions, however we do have a priority deadline of February 15. Completing an application before February 15 ensures you a space in the major of your choosing, if you are accepted to the institution. If you have recently completed an application and have not yet heard from us, please try to be patient as the admissions team is working hard to review applications in a timely manner. If you would like to check the status of your application, feel free to reach out to your admissions counselor.

Financial Aid: This is often an area of concern for students and families when trying to make their final enrollment decision. At Wentworth, more than 75% of our students receive federal financial aid and 100% of students receive a merit scholarship. For families who have not yet filed a FAFSA, we recommend that you do so ASAP! We understand that applying for need-based financial aid can be a confusing and overwhelming process. Our financial aid counselors are here to address your concerns. Your financial aid counselor can be reached by phone or email. Understand that our Financial Aid Office receives a high volume of calls and emails in the spring semester, so please allow a few days for your counselor to follow up with you. If you have general questions, refer to the financial aid section of our website. Financial aid awards will not be mailed to students until mid-to-late March, 2017.

Events: This spring, we will be hosting several events for admitted students. Our Accepted Student Days will be held on Friday, March 24 and Friday, March 31. All students who have been accepted to Wentworth will be receiving formal invitations to the event. If you know you will be attending, please make sure to RSVP so that we know to expect you. Wentworth also invites accepted students to shadow classes of a current Wentworth student in their anticipated major. For more information or to request a shadow day, please refer to the accepted student website. The link can be found in your acceptance packet.

Deadline to #CommitToWIT: May 1, 2017 is the deadline to submit your tuition and housing deposit. We cannot guarantee that housing will be available to students who submit their housing deposit after the May 1 deadline. To deposit, you can submit a check or pay online. Instructions for submitting your deposit can be found on the back of your grey enrollment form in your acceptance packet.

Don’t forget to engage with us on twitter and Instagram and let us know if you’re excited to attend Wentworth by using the hashtag #WITAdmit!
