Review Transfer Enrollment Policies

Drexel reviews college coursework completed by all admitted transfer students and may grant credit for courses completed at a college or university that is either regionally accredited or a recognized candidate for accreditation according to the Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission of Higher Education.

To receive transfer credit for courses completed at another institution, the courses must be substantially equivalent to courses offered in the desired curriculum at Drexel and you must have completed the courses with a grade of C (C=2.0) or better. The number of credits you can transfer will be determined by your academic department once you've been admitted.
