Drexel Central will still be providing assistance to students during this time.

International Wire Transfers
Drexel University has engaged Western Union Global Payment to facilitate the receipt of student fees by the University from international students. This payment option allows you to pay your student account balance in the currency of your choice to the University and provides a simple and secure method for initiating payments electronically. We encourage all international students to choose this cost effective and efficient method of payment to the University.
Domestic Wire Transfer
Instructions for domestic wire transfers are available upon requests submitted electronically via AskDrexel.
In person payments are only accepted at the cashier's window in the Drexel Central University City Campus office, during normal office operating hours. You may pay in-person with a check, money order, cashier's check, or cash. For your safety, we recommend you do not carry large amounts of cash with you.
A drop box is also available for after-hours check or money order payments (please do not deposit cash into the drop box). The drop box is located to the left of the Drexel Central doors opposite the main stair case in the Main Building. If you are dropping off a payment in the drop box please include the student ID number in the memo of the check/money order as well as the payment stub from your eBill.
529 Savings Plan Payments
A 529 College Savings Plan is a specialized account that allows you or your family to save money for your future college expenses. These plans are usually administered by a state or an educational institution.
529 College Savings Plans differ depending upon the state or organization that you sign up with. There can be lifetime limits on deposits and restrictions on what type of qualified college costs can be paid with money saved in a plan. Additionally, there may be fees and tax implications if you use a 529 College Savings Plan. You can view more details about 529 College Savings Plan at the Saving For College website.
If you have a 529 College Savings Plan that you would like to use to pay your Drexel bill, you should contact the organization to determine if they pay directly to you or to Drexel. You can use a copy of your eBill as proof of qualified direct educational expenses.
