Early Action Explained

This fall, there's a new way to apply to Drexel: Early Action.

If you're getting ready to apply to Drexel as a freshman, you've probably already noticed this new admission option. But is it right for you? Let's take a minute to see how Early Action works and why it may be the right choice for you.

The Benefits

When you submit a complete Early Action application, including all required materials like transcripts and standardized test scores, we consider your application before Regular Decision applications. That means you'll get an admission decision earlier — as soon as mid-December in some cases.

It's also important to note that Early Action is a non-binding admission option. That means you can apply early without incurring any obligation to the University. Choosing a college is a big decision, and with Early Action, you'll have the information you need to make that decision a little more easily.

How It Works

When you submit your application, you'll have the option to tell us how you'd like to be considered for admission. Choose the one that's best for you:

  • Early Action Round One — November 1: Complete your application by November 1, and we'll release an admission decision by mid-December.
  • Early Action Round Two — December 1: Complete your application by December 1, and we'll release an admission decision by mid-January.
  • Regular Decision — January 15: If Early Action isn't for you, you can still apply regular decision. Just complete your application by January 15, and we'll release an admission decision by April 1.

All majors and programs are eligible to apply through the Early Action option.

Let's Go!

When you're ready, just apply — we'll walk you through the process, including your choice of admission option.
