Not Ready for a Master's Degree?

Recorded March 25, 2021
Did you know that 40% of WPI's new online graduate students start as non-matriculated students (i.e they haven't formally applied to WPI)? In this session we discuss your option to take graduate courses without committing or applying to a master's degree program. If you want to learn a specialized skillset, or you just want to dip your toes in the water before committing to a program, we discuss the many benefits of being a casual course-taker or pursuing a graduate certificate instead—both of which could lead to the completion of a graduate program.
