How To: Opt Out of the DSU Laptop Program

 

Overview:

All undergraduate degree-seeking students taking six (6) or more on-campus credits are required to be part of the WMCI (Wireless Mobile Computing Initiative) program.  This is a one-time request that once granted is in effect until the student requests to participate in the program again.

 

Opt-Out Requirements: 

Students who request to opt-out of DSU’s Laptop Program must meet at least one of the following requirements:

Be an exchange student, attending only one/two semester(s).

DSU is not your home university.  You are a degree-seeking student with another SDBoR institution.

Be a junior or senior and have completed 59 credits or more prior to the end of the previous semester.

Purchased a Fujitsu laptop from sell inventory.

ON-CAMPUS CREDITS INCLUDE ANY COURSE DELIVERED FACE-TO-FACE AT THE MADISON CAMPUS.

If you do not meet these requirements, your request will be denied until requirements are met.
