Additional Registration Resources

As you are considering your course recommendations listed above we ask that you remember some important information. There is a valuable set of videos  that explains more about WPI and the course registration process.

  1. Make sure you go through the whole course registration website. This will put you on the right path to select the proper classes for A and B terms.
  2. WPI is a unique institution which allows students to combine theory and practice. Make sure to review information about general degree requirements of your intended major by looking over the tracking sheets which are linked on each major page.
  3. Be sure to consider your Math Placement results when selecting courses. It is the best guide for selecting the right math course in A and B terms.
  4. Consider if you have AP, IB, or Transfer Credit when selecting courses. We recognize that you may not have received all of your scores by the time course registration begins. We ask that you assume that you get the credit that you took the exams for. You cannot receive credit for the same course twice, so if you received credit from your exams you should not take the course again.
  5. If you are not able to get into a class be sure to select back up sections or courses add yourself to the waitlist for your top choice.
  6. Your Academic Advisor will review your schedule and contact you if any changes need to be made before you come to campus in August, so trust yourself in selecting the courses you are most interested in! Be sure to check your WPI email regularly throughout the summer.
