Investing in a Drexel Education
Tuition and Other Costs
Choosing the right school means making sure it has an academic program that will challenge and inspire you, has a social environment that will spur personal growth, and is the right financial investment.
At Drexel, we want to make sure the cost of a Drexel education is clear and that every family fully understands and takes advantage of all the financial resources available.
What Is Drexel's Cost of Attendance?
So how much does an investment in a Drexel education cost? Take a look at the breakdown of an average first year at Drexel.
Your First-Year Costs
During your first year at Drexel, you will attend classes for three quarters: fall, winter, and spring. The enrollment plan for transfer students may be different depending on their transfer credit evaluation. Below are the estimated costs of tuition, fees, and average food and housing costs based on three quarters for the 2023–2024 academic year.
|Food and Housing||$17,550
These numbers reflect the estimated cost of attendance prior to financial aid being applied.
In the 2022–2023 academic year, Drexel offered financial support to 99% of its incoming first-year students as well as to 97% of its transfer students entering in fall 2022 who were seeking to complete their first bachelor's degree and had not already earned a graduate/professional degree. The average scholarship and grant aid offered to first-year students was $34,053, and the average offered to fall transfer students was $31,199. These amounts include federal, state, and institutional aid.

Other Costs You Should Consider
It's important to remember that there may be other costs to consider during your education. Some of these include books, course materials, supplies and equipment (which vary by program), a computer, transportation, and miscellaneous personal costs. Estimates of these other costs are taken into consideration when Drexel reviews your financial aid eligibility.
Your Costs After the First Year
Your subsequent yearly costs will be determined by your enrollment for each term. If you are:
- Enrolled in classes – you will be billed for tuition, University fees, and any applicable food and housing costs.
- Enrolled in co-op – you will not be billed for tuition, but you will still pay for University fees and any applicable food and housing costs.
