Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • How do I know what textbooks and supplies to purchase?

    Any textbooks and supplies that are required for the class, will be communicated from the professor and will be listed on the im体育app平台下载 Bookstore website. Each course ranges on the necessary materials, but the average is $200 per course.

  • What are the deadline to withdraw from a course?

    For summer session II, the date to add or drop a course is Friday, July 17 to receive a full refund (first day of class is Monday, July 13). Students may withdraw from a course within the first three weeks, but will not be eligible for a refund because it is passed the add/drop deadline.

  • How many courses should a student take?

    We recommend that students enroll in one summer course during a session. These are college courses with rigorous content that are taught in only five weeks. We want high school students to have enough time and energy to dedicate to one class so they are successful in this endeavor.

  • What type of students will be enrolled in summer courses?

    im体育app平台下载's summer courses are open to many constituents including im体育app平台下载 undergraduate students, visiting undergraduate students, high-achieving high school students, and other guests.

    As part of an undergraduate application, im体育app平台下载 does look at demonstrated interest.

  • Is there a payment plan option for Frontiers for Credit? Is need-based financial aid available?

    Unfortunately, there is not a payment plan offered for Frontiers for Credit. 

    Unfortunately, there is no financial assistance available for high school students. im体育app平台下载 has made the intentional decision to discount courses to a 50% price mark for all high school students and which will include complimentary wrap-around services. 

  • What if I have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in school?

    If a high school student has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or questions about classroom accommodations, please email the Director of Accessibility Services, Amy Curran, acurran@wpi.edu.  She will work directly with students and families regarding options.
