WPI allows applicants to self-report test scores, saving on application fees

Worcester Polytechnic Institute has joined a growing number of colleges and universities that allow students or their school counselors to self-report their SAT and ACT test scores, saving money and time for prospective students.

Previously, students had to request that their scores be submitted via the agencies that administer the SAT and ACT, which collect a fee from students for each school being sent the scores. These fees are in addition to those that students spend on registration each time they sit for a standardized test.

As of the start of this month, students applying to WPI who wish to submit their test scores can do so directly. Students who are admitted and plan to enroll are then required to submit any scores officially, via the testing agencies.

Becker, UMass Law team to launch accelerated law degree

Students enrolled in Becker’s pre-law program can now go from classroom to courtroom in just six years. Becker and UMass School of Law at Dartmouth signed an articulation agreement that will allow Becker’s most talented pre-law students to complete both their undergraduate studies and law degree in six years, instead of seven.

“This is a great new program which allows students to enter law school in their senior year and save time and money in the process,” said Ursula Furi-Perry, Becker’s assistant dean of the School of Nursing and Behavioral Sciences, who heads the departments of Criminal Justice/Legal Studies. “UMass in particular is a wonderful partner because of its intense focus on social justice and access to justice issues which resonate with our students.”
