Change to August eBill Date

In order to accommodate changes to fall quarter housing and dining plans due to the University going remote for undergraduate coursework, the August eBill issuing date has been changed.

All students in quarter programs who are registered for fall quarter will receive their eBill on August 31, 2020. The due date for this bill will be September 16, 2020.

Please note that this change in billing dates will not impact financial aid disbursements for fall, the issuing of refunds, or payment plan due dates.

You can view the updated billing schedule at Billing Due Dates.

Updates to FERPA Waiver Process

The University has made updates to its FERPA Waiver process that help students specify what type of information they would like to grant access to for family members and other third-parties.

Students now have the option to grant access as part of specific University discussions to certain types of information related to their records. The chart below indicates the type of information that students can grant their family members access to when working with the University as part of University-wide discussions/questions or appointments.

* Authorized user access to a student's eBill and billing account is separate from a FERPA Waiver; having a FERPA Waiver does not allow a Family Member to view a student's official bill or make payments on their behalf. Students must set up family members as authorized users separate from granting FERPA access.

University Closed to Observe Juneteenth on June 19

Drexel University offices, including Drexel Central, will be closed on Friday, June 19 to allow time to observe Juneteenth.

Juneteenth commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. Although President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was declared on January 1, 1863, slavery continued through the Civil War. It was not until June 19, 1865 in Galveston, Texas, following the end of the war and the arrival of federal troops, that those enslaved were freed. The National Museum of African American History and Culture calls Juneteenth "our country's second Independence Day." The widespread celebration of the anniversary dates back to the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s. Today, it includes official acknowledgements in almost every state, as well as events sponsored by the Smithsonian and other institutions to expand awareness and embrace Black contributions to the history and culture of this country.
