International Students

Welcome! Drexel College of Engineering strives to create a student body that reflects the diversity of the global engineering field. We are glad you are here and recognize that both coming to a new country and beginning college can be an exciting and challenging new experience. The advising staff in the Undergraduate Advising Center is here to help you make a smooth transition to Drexel and the U.S. You can find out what is happening at the mid-summer Orientation Session and what will be happening over the summer on our home page.

You will begin receiving newsletters to prepare you for the fall term during the first week of August. Please check your Drexel email frequently and read up on this important information! These newsletters will include information regarding orientation, placement exams, class schedules, and how best to prepare for your first year at Drexel. You can also contact your academic advisor directly with additional questions and any concerns prior to your arrival at Drexel.

You can find information about International Student Orientation on Student Life's Orientation website, specifically the Pre-Arrival Handbook. Additionally, the International Students and Scholars information can be found on the ISSS website. The ISSS website also includes information on how to get to Drexel from the Philadelphia International Airport.

We look forward to meeting you in September!
