Review Drexel's Enrollment Policies

First-year students may submit enrollment deferral requests up until September 1. In order to request a deferral, you must first confirm your enrollment by May 1 via Discover Drexel and submit the non-refundable $300 tuition deposit. Once your confirmation is processed, you may submit a request to defer your enrollment. Your request will then be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and a decision will be sent to you via email. Learn more about Deferring Enrollment for First-Year Students.

Transfer students who wish to defer their admission to a future term must submit a written request for an enrollment deferral. To request a deferral, you may submit the request through the Discover Drexel Portal using the Application Inquiry form, or you can email Drexel at stating the reason you wish to defer. The deferral request should include: the reason(s) for deferral, what you will be doing during the deferral period (i.e., working, volunteering), what term you want to defer to, and any other information you believe will be helpful to the Admissions Committee. Upon receipt of the request, it will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and you will be notified of the decision by email. If the deferral is granted, you must enroll within one year and you are only eligible for one deferral. If you are granted a deferral, you must still submit the nonrefundable tuition deposit in order to be officially deferred to a different term. Learn more about Deferring Enrollment for Transfer Students.

Drexel recognizes the significance of superior scores earned by incoming first-year students on Advanced Placement (AP) examinations administered by the College Board. Students should arrange to have their scores sent directly to Drexel University from the College Board. Drexel's College Board school code is 2194. Scores will be reviewed by your academic advisor after you have confirmed your enrollment. For additional information regarding AP credit, including the University's AP credit conversion chart, please review the Provost's Academic Policy on Advanced Placement Credit.

Drexel University recognizes the significance of superior scores earned by incoming first-year students on select higher-level International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. Students should arrange to have an original or certified copy of exam results sent to Drexel University's Office of Admission. Exam results will be reviewed by your academic advisor after you have confirmed your enrollment. For more information, please review the Provost's Academic Policy on International Baccalaureate Credit [PDF].

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. Note: Some programs may require a grade higher than a C to transfer credits.

Learn more about Transfer Credit Evaluations.

Official transcripts from the college(s) an applicant attended should be sent to Admissions along with a High School Dual Enrollment Verification form [PDF] by June 30 in order to receive an evaluation of college-level coursework completed during high school.

Coursework will be evaluated by the academic advisor after an applicant has confirmed enrollment at Drexel. Typically, coursework is transferable if the applicant has received a C grade or better, has not used the coursework to satisfy high school graduation requirements, and the coursework is applicable to the applicant's course of study. However, the academic advisor will make the final evaluation.
