Financing Options

We know that there are many factors to consider in the college selection process, not the least of which is the financial investment you are soon to make. We realize that a college education is a significant expense for most families and requires careful planning.

Payment plans are available to part-time students, and matriculated students taking at least six credits a term may be eligible for federal and state aid. However, students in certain certificate programs and non-matriculated students are not eligible for financial aid.

Whatever your financial situation is, we encourage you to explore the links below so that you can navigate the financial aid process with greater ease. All of the information below and more can be found at Drexel Central, the University's one-stop office for student financial and registration services.

Tuition Management Systems (TMS) Payment Plan

Employer Assisted Tuition Deferred Payment Plan

Drexel University's Employer Reimbursement Plan is designed for students whose employers offer reimbursement for tuition charges. It allows part-time students to defer their tuition payments to Drexel until 30 days after the term has been completed. There is a nonrefundable application fee for this service. The plan is available term by term.
