DSU Laptop Program: Overview


At DSU, we prioritize technology in order to enhance the academic environment and create more engaging and interactive classrooms.

As part of the Wireless Mobile Computing Initiative (WMCI), full-time freshmen who are taking 6 or more on-campus credits are eligible to receive a new laptop in the fall. Freshman starting in the spring and transfer students will be assigned a new or refurbished device, based on the inventory at that time. After 4 years of continuous, uninterrupted participation in the DSU Laptop Program, the device assigned to the student is theirs to keep.

Note: students that currently have a Fujitsu device assigned to them will continue with the Fujitsu laptop program agreement rules.
