Accepted Graduate Students

Welcome graduate students and congratulations on your acceptance to Drexel University! We look forward to welcoming you to the University and CCI community.

The checklist below outlines important next steps to be completed prior to your enrollment in the College of Computing & Informatics:

  1. Confirm Your Enrollment. Confirm your intent to enroll by submitting your nonrefundable tuition deposit through Discover Drexel.
  2. Activate your computer accounts. This will enable you to access all of Drexel’s electronic student services, including DrexelOne and Drexel email. CCI will only communicate with you through your Drexel email address.
  3. Academic Planning and Registration: If you are a student that has confirmed to begin your studies in the fall term, course registration will begin in late July. CCI Graduate Advising will contact all confirmed students for the fall term in mid-July with important information on registration and academic planning. For students that have confirmed to begin their studies in the spring term, registration will begin in mid-February. Confirmed students for the spring term should expect an advising and registration email in early February. In addition, if you confirm your enrollment after registration has begun for your prospective start term, you will be contacted 2-3 business days after you’ve confirmed. It is important that you have your Drexel accounts set up, as the CCI Advising Team will be reaching out to you through your Drexel email.
  4. Get a tuition discount. All CCI students are eligible for up to a 25% discount on tuition. This incentive is not combinable with other incentives or fellowships. Most CCI students join American Library Association (student membership fee) or Webjunction’s Crossroads newsletter (free to join) for partner tuition benefits. For a list of discount partners, please visit Drexel's Online Partnerships webpage. If you have joined a partner organization or would like assistance in joining in order to obtain a discount, please contact your assigned Graduate Academic Advisor. Your advisor will be able to assist you communicating your discount to Drexel Central, but please direct all other financial questions to Drexel Central directly. NOTE: DXC and Comcast CXT students are not eligible for tuition discounts.
