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 during Welcome Week in September 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 July. Please check your Drexel email frequently and read up on this important information! These newsletters will include information regarding 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 the International Student Scholars and Services Office by visiting their website where you will find important information regarding your visa, international student support services, directions from the airport, etc. Additionally, new students can review the Pre-Arrival Handbook for more information and to prepare themselves for their transition into Drexel.

We look forward to communicating with you throughout the summer and meeting you in September!
