Review Your New Student Checklist
Once you've received confirmation from Drexel that your enrollment form and tuition deposit have been processed, you may continue the enrollment process. We compiled this list to help you prepare for the first day of class.
Note: International students should visit the International Students and Scholars Services website for additional information.
- Contact your academic adviser prior to registering for your first term. Refer to the following websites as you plan for your first term at Drexel:
- Pick up your computer accounts. As a Drexel student, you are entitled to computer accounts, such as email and the DrexelOne portal. Visit the Information Resources and Technology (IRT) New Accounts page to pick up your accounts.
- Submit final transcripts prior to enrollment. If you are unable to provide final transcripts by the first day of classes, please notify the Office of Graduate Admissions at 215.895.6700 immediately. Failure to submit final transcripts may result in a hold being placed on your account.
- Comply with Drexel's Immunization and Health Insurance policies. All international and full-time graduate students must be in compliance with these policies. For details, visit the Health Insurance and Immunizations website.
- Pick up your DragonCard University ID. Once you have registered for your classes, you are eligible for the DragonCard, which you will need to access certain buildings on campus. Visit the DragonCard Office located in Room 124 of the Creese Student Center on the University City Campus or in Room 1603 of the New College Building on the Center City Campus to have your ID photo taken. You must show a valid state-issued ID (driver's license or passport). Visit the DragonCard website for more information.
- Notify Disability Resources if you have any physical or learning disabilities. Drexel University is committed to providing equal access to its programs and services to qualified students. Visit the Office of Disability Resources website for more information.
- Apply for financial aid. U.S. citizens and permanent residents should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), using Drexel's school code (003256) in order to be considered for federal aid. Additionally, certain graduate programs require the completion of the Institutional Financial Aid Application. For more information about the financial aid process, visit the Drexel Central website.
- Complete any outstanding financial aid requirements (U.S. citizens and permanent residents only). Students who have confirmed their attendance can check their status on DrexelOne.
- Notify Drexel Central of any changes in your enrollment status. A change in enrollment status (from full- to part-time, for example) could affect your financial aid award. Visit AskDrexel to report changes to your enrollment status.
- Review your billing information. Familiarize yourself with Drexel's billing system and set up any features (such as text message notification) so that you are ready when your first ebill is issued. Information about Drexel tuition, fees, and billing processes can be found on Drexel Central's Billing webpage. You should also review the different payment options available, including payment plans and the employer reimbursement plan on the Drexel Central Payments webpage.
