Transfer Profile


Why transfer to Wentworth?

Why transfer to Wentworth? At Wentworth we understand that students transfer for a variety of reasons. Whatever your reasons for transferring, we take your particular situation into account. We have two primary criteria for evaluating transfer students: academic achievement and personal qualities.

Academics at Wentworth
When you join the Wentworth community, you can enjoy the benefits of small class sizes (approximately 20 students) and individual attention from a dedicated teaching faculty with professional industry experience. There are more than 60 on-campus laboratories and studios, which are an integral component of all majors at Wentworth, creating a hands-on learning environment. Wentworth is also one of the more affordable full-time baccalaureate options in Boston.

Cooperative education
Wentworth offers one of the most comprehensive cooperative education (co-op) programs in the United States. For 40 years Wentworth has been opening career doors and helping students gain professional, paid work experience. Co-op is an important feature of Wentworth’s career-focused education. Before graduation all students are required to work for two semesters in a paid position directly related to their major. Co-op provides valuable, practical experience, which serves students well in their search for employment after graduation.

Colleges of the Fenway
Wentworth is part of one of Boston’s largest academic collaborations, a consortium representing over 12,000 students. Wentworth has partnerships with Emmanuel College, Simmons College, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Wheelock College, and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students have cross-registration with other colleges, interlibrary loan privileges, and combined extracurricular activities such as orchestra, theater, and other social and athletic opportunities. All of the members of the consortium are a short walk apart.

Admission
Wentworth practices rolling admission, which means we review each application once all required materials are received. While there is not an official deadline to apply for transfer, some majors and on-campus housing fill up quickly, so we encourage you to apply early.

Applying for transfer is easy; simply go to our website at wit.edu/apply and complete the online application. In addition, the following documentation is required: a personal statement or essay, a letter of recommendation from a professor or other professional familiar with your academic abilities, your final official high school transcript, and official college transcripts from any institution of higher learning you have attended. If you are within a year of having graduated from high school, official scores of either the SAT or ACT must also be submitted.
