Applying for Aid
Applying for financial aid at Drexel is easy. You should apply for financial aid whether or not you think you are eligible because you may qualify for alternatives that you don't know about.
To apply for financial aid, we recommend that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Drexel's Institutional Financial Aid Application before May 1.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
To receive a Stafford Student Loan and other types of need-based jobs and loans, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete your FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov.
Enter "Drexel University" and Drexel's school code number 003256 on the FAFSA.
Federal income tax forms are not required with the FAFSA, although you may be required to supply copies of your income tax forms at a later date.
Institutional Student Financial Aid Application
U.S. citizens and permanent residents applying must also complete Drexel's Institutional Financial Aid Application [PDF]. The supplementary information provided on this form will enable Drexel Central to process your financial aid application correctly.
If you intend to enroll in the fall, we recommend that you complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 and before May 1. Drexel cannot process your financial aid award letter without the FAFSA and Drexel's Institutional Financial Aid Application.
