International Students

Conducting your college search can be stressful — so many details, deadlines, and decisions! To help you, we've gathered some Drexel resources to guide you through the process.

Refer to our Frequently Asked Questions for answers to most commonly asked questions from international students. For additional assistance and information, please Contact Undergraduate Admissions.

The Admission Process

Drexel takes into consideration a number of criteria when determining admission, including your high school performance and/or college performance, test scores, letters of recommendation, and essay.


Drexel University awards a limited number of merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students who have excellent academic credentials and the potential for high academic achievement at Drexel. These scholarships are only offered upon admission to Drexel; they are not offered after you begin studying at Drexel. You will be notified at the time of admission if you have been awarded a scholarship.

International freshman applicants are also eligible to apply for the Drexel Global Scholar program. Visit Drexel Central's Undergraduate Scholarships page to learn more about how to apply for the Drexel Global Scholar program.

International applicants who are interested in institutional need-based financial aid are required to submit the CSS Profile by the appropriate deadline. Applicants who do not submit this information by the deadline may not be eligible for institutional need-based financial aid. You can submit the CSS Profile on the College Board website; be sure to list Drexel so that we can receive this information.
