If you’re like many students, you feel that your career isn’t accelerating at the pace you’d like to see.
You feel disconnected from the professional world. That’s exactly why so many students transfer to Wentworth. From day one, you are connected to the professional world, building your experience, skills, and confidence. We are a hands-on, action-oriented university, and our cooperative education program is one of the most comprehensive in higher ed. You will graduate as a seasoned professional—with a salary to match. Wentworth graduates’ median starting salary is 25% more than that of a typical college graduate, according to PayScale. 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 enjoy the benefits of small class sizes (approximately 20 students) and individual attention from a dedicated teaching faculty with professional industry experience. Thereare more than two dozen state-of-the-art laboratories, makerspaces, 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.
Wentworth offers one of the most comprehensive cooperative education (co-op) programs in the United States. For over 40 years, Wentworth has been opening doors and helping students gain professional, paid work experience. 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 that serves students well in their search for employment after graduation. Within six months of graduation, 99% of graduates are employed or in graduate school.
Colleges of the Fenway
Wentworth is part of one of Boston’s largest academic collaborations, a consortium representing over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, more than 700 full-time faculty, and 2,300 course offerings. Wentworth has partnerships with Emmanuel College, Simmons University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students have the ability to cross-register with other colleges, interlibrary loan privileges, and combined extracurricular activities such as orchestra, theater, and other social and athletic opportunities.
Wentworth practices rolling admission, which means we review each application once all required materials are received. While there isn’t 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/transfer or apply via the Common Application at apply.commonapp.org.
