Haverford and CalTech have a joint program under which a student who is interested in engineering may, in the second semester of their junior year, apply for transfer to an engineering program at CalTech.
If accepted into the program, then at the end of five years (three at Haverford, two at CalTech), the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree by Haverford and a Bachelor of Engineering Degree by CalTech. For each engineering discipline, there is a required set of courses to be taken at Haverford during the first three years of the program. Interested students should consult their advisor and the College’s advisor for the 3/2 Program (Fall Semester: Professor Alex Norquist [firstname.lastname@example.org]; Spring Semester: Professor Walter Smith [email@example.com]) about the proper course selection; this consultation should occur as early as possible. A cumulative grade point average of 3.5 is generally expected for this program.
3/2 applicants are eligible for financial aid from CalTech, though that aid is arranged separately from the financial aid from Haverford. (Note that international students are not eligible for CalTech financial aid.)
