Frequently Asked Questions

Admission Decisions

Students applying for freshman admission are offered the choice of applying Early Action or Regular Decision.

Early Decision (ED)

If you choose to apply for Early Decision, it means that you will apply early and receive an admission decision sooner than the Regular Decision applicant pool. Early Decision applicants will receive one of three possible decisions: an offer of admission, deferral to Regular Decision (for your first-choice major), or denied admission. Early Decision is binding. This means that if you are offered admission, you must attend Drexel University and withdraw any applications submitted to other schools.

Early Action (EA)

If you choose to apply for Early Action, it means that you will apply early and receive an admission decision sooner than the Regular Decision applicant pool. Early Action applicants will receive one of three possible decisions: an offer of admission, deferral to Regular Decision (for your first-choice major), or denied admission. Early Action is non-binding, and if accepted, you have until the May 1 National Candidates' Reply Date to confirm your acceptance.

Regular Decision (RD)

If you choose to apply for Regular Decision, you will receive a non-binding decision from Drexel by April 1. If accepted, you have until May 1 to confirm your acceptance.
