Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Olin's goal is to change the way students learn about engineering. They emphasize an interdisciplinary approach, teamwork, hands-on design, business, creativity and communication. The campus is located adjacent to their education partner Babson College on 70 acres in Needham Massachusetts, a suburb 14 miles west of Boston.
