We know that there are many factors to consider when selecting a graduate program, not the least of which is the financial investment you are soon to make. This is why we encourage all students to carefully consider available financing options.
Financial aid is available to graduate students primarily through student loans, assistantships, merit-based scholarships, tuition remission, and incentive programs. Internships, traineeships, and special fellowships are also available in some programs. Please keep in mind that to be eligible for most Drexel financial aid, you must be enrolled as a full-time student (9 or more credits per term). However, you can be considered for some aid as a part-time student (6–8 credits per term).
Whatever your financial situation may be, we encourage you to explore our financial aid programs and financing resources for graduate students so that you can navigate the financial aid process with greater ease.
Tuition and Fees
Drexel graduate student tuition is based on the number of credits students register for each term. In most cases, graduate students are billed tuition at a per-credit rate. Additionally, there may be other costs to consider during your education. Some of these include books (which vary by program), a computer, transportation, and miscellaneous personal costs. These other costs are taken into consideration when Drexel reviews your financial aid eligibility.
You can view tuition and fee costs on Drexel Central's Graduate Tuition page.
Applying for Aid
Applying for financial aid at Drexel is simple. You should apply for financial aid whether or not you think you are eligible, as you may qualify for aid that you are unaware of.
To have your eligibility for a Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan and other types of aid reviewed, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Be sure to enter "Drexel University" and Drexel's school code number 003256. View more information about the FAFSA.
Prospective graduate students should complete the FAFSA any time after October 1.
