Transfer 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 about transferring to Drexel. For additional assistance and information, please Contact Undergraduate Admissions.

Full-Time Transfer Admission Process

Drexel takes into consideration a number of criteria when determining admission, including your college performance in relation to your desired major and essay.

Drexel assumes that you've completed coursework similar to Drexel's curriculum. To be considered for admission as a transfer student, you should have completed a minimum of 24 college credits from a regionally accredited institution. If you have fewer than 24 college credits and graduated from high school less than two years prior to your application, you will also need to submit your high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores. To learn more about transferring credit, see our information on Transfer Credit Evaluations.

Additional Transfer Opportunities

In addition to our full-time programs, Drexel provides a number of flexible options for students looking to complete their bachelor's degrees.

  • Part-Time Undergraduate Programs – Many of Drexel's undergraduate programs are available part-time. Some part-time programs require limited daytime coursework, but many can be completed entirely through evening coursework. Our Behavioral Health Counseling Saturday Scholars® degree completion program can be completed entirely on Saturdays.
  • Drexel University Online – Drexel programs available from anywhere with an Internet connection.
  • Continuing and Professional Education Programs – For professional development, you can register for non-credit courses.
