Drexel's Admission Standards

Acceptance for graduate study at Drexel University requires a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in the United States or an equivalent international institution. Although admission requirements vary by program, regular acceptance typically requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B) for the last two years of undergraduate work. The average for any graduate work must be at least 3.0. Applicants for post-master's status must show potential for further study by having maintained at least a 3.0 average in their master's-level studies. (Individual departmental requirements may exceed this minimum.)

The admission committee evaluates all credentials submitted by applicants to determine a student's ability and potential to succeed in graduate study. In addition, the committee is interested in the applicant's potential to contribute to his/her program of study and to the University community as a whole.

Admission Requirements and Deadlines

It is your responsibility to ensure that all materials required for the evaluation of your application are received by the Office of Admissions before the deadline. If your application is not complete by your program's deadline date, it may not be evaluated for the term requested.

Individual programs have specific deadlines and requirements. Please refer to engineering's program requirements and deadlines for more information.

How to Apply

Applicants may only apply to one program. All documents submitted by you or on your behalf in support of this application for admission to Drexel University become the property of the University, and will under no circumstances be released to you or any other party. Remember, Drexel will waive the $75 application fee if you apply online or submit your application during a campus visit.

Expedite the Process

  • Request supporting documents such as transcripts, test scores, recommendation letters, and affidavits of support as soon as possible. They may take longer to receive than you expect.

  • Send original copies of official test scores or transcripts. Photocopies may be acceptable for non-matriculated or certificate programs (please see program requirements and deadlines). Drexel's   school code is 2194. Do not use departmental codes, and do not send scores to the academic department.
