Drew students must have a major other than Business to be eligible for this program. Business majors are not eligible.  Students with a minor in Business are eligible. Acceptance to the dual degree program guarantees a financial scholarship from Wake Forest University. The amount awarded depends on Drew GPA and other evidence, as described below.

  • Achieve a GPA of at least 3.3 at the end of their junior year;
