      • You are transferring with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better (on a 4.0 scale) and completed one calculus and one science course approved for engineering.
      • You are enrolling in one of Widener's engineering majors–biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, or mechanical–in Fall 2014 [or Spring 2015 for transfers only] and will remain enrolled as a full-time student for at least four semesters pursuing a designated engineering curriculum.

If so, you'll have a guaranteed laptop. A Widener application for admission is required. Just fill out the form online at www.widener.edu/admissions. No separate application for the laptop is required. This program is only open to high school students who have not previously enrolled in any other post-secondary institution.
