Important Notice About FERPA
Posted on September 26, 2018
It is important to review University policies each academic term to familiarize yourself with the rules and procedures that impact your time at Drexel. One of the most important policies is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
FERPA is a federal law that establishes protection for your student educational record. Review Drexel's full FERPA policy.
While this law protects your privacy and limits the University's ability to disclose educational records, you can choose to give access to parents, guardians, or anyone else whom you deem appropriate by completing a FERPA waiver via DrexelOne. This will give the person(s) named the ability to speak about your student record with Financial Aid, the Office of the Bursar, Academic Advising, The University Registrar, Drexel Central, and other offices at Drexel.

There's Still Time to File a 2018–2019 FAFSA
Posted on September 25, 2018
Students who are U.S. Citizens or permanent residents, and are enrolled in for the 2018–2019 academic year, who have not completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) still have the chance to be considered for federal aid.
The 2018–2019 FAFSA is currently available to be completed online at the FAFSA website.
Please be sure to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing your FAFSA. This offers both students and parents the ability to directly import tax information from the IRS to your FAFSA.
Additional information about completing the FAFSA can be found on the Drexel Central All About the FAFSA Process page.
Updated Personal Information Features in DrexelOne
Posted on August 28, 2018
Drexel is improving how students view and edit their personal information via DrexelOne.
The new version of the Personal Information page includes all biographical information in one location; the information will include your name, date of birth, contact information (email, address, and phone), emergency contact information, University ID, Social Security number, gender, ethnicity and race, and preferred pronoun, and is accessible via the "Account" icon in the upper left corner of DrexelOne.
Additionally, this new page will allow students the option to indicate a preferred first name. Drexel strives to create an inclusive environment and is continuously engaged in efforts to ensure all students feel supported in every aspect of their college experience. Being able to provide a preferred first name that can be used by professors in the classroom, certain administrative systems, and in the University’s official directory will help to further these efforts.
