Congratulations on your admission to Drexel University! We couldn't be more excited for your arrival on campus and will strive to make your transition an enjoyable and rewarding one.

In order to ensure that students are placed into courses for which they are well prepared, Drexel's faculty has developed a set of placement examinations. These examinations reflect the proficiency that is expected of students to be ready for the curriculum presented in the various college level MathematicsChemistry, and Modern Language courses.

  • While AP (and equivalent) scores will be taken into consideration for course placement, it is very important that students take their placement exams as soon as possible so that their Fall schedules can be constructed.
  • International students will be assessed on their proficiency in writing & speaking in English for proper course placement.
  • To request an accommodation on the placement exams (such as extended time) due to a disability, students must first register with the Office of Disability Resources (ODR) prior to taking their exams.
  • Transfer students will be contacted by their college or school regarding any placement examination requirements.
