Notice for Applicants Using the Common Application to Apply for Early Action

October 28, 2013

The Common Application recently upgraded their application services, but due to problems with the new system, we may not have received all of the supporting materials submitted for applicants applying for an Early Action deadline.

If your guidance counselor submitted supporting application materials on your behalf through the Common Application system (Docufide or Naviance), but you have not seen an application status update in the Discover Drexel Portal or received notification from Drexel that we received these materials, we ask that you work with your guidance counselor to resubmit these documents directly to Drexel.

If you have not yet requested that your supporting application materials be sent, please ask your guidance counselor to submit them to Drexel directly, rather than through the Common Application.

Your guidance counselor can send them to us by email, fax, or postal mail:

Email: em_processing@drexel.edu
Fax: 215-895-1285
Postal Mail: Drexel University, Application Processing, PO Box 34789, Philadelphia, PA 19101

Drexel's iSchool Reboots as the College of Computing and Informatics

September 9, 2013

The College of Computing and Informatics offers the following programs:

  • Computer Science
  • Software Engineering
  • Informatics
