The International Gateway program is a pathway for international students who would benefit from additional English language preparation before matriculating into an undergraduate program. Students in the program receive a foundation year of study and full immersion in campus life.
In addition to working to improve their English abilities, Gateway students take courses worth up to 25 transferable credits. After successfully completing the program, qualified students will be able to transfer directly into their undergraduate major at Drexel.
International Gateway students are billed quarterly for actual course load and fees. The chart below shows estimated costs for one academic year of study in Gateway.
Most students complete International Gateway in three quarters (9 months), however some students may require four quarters (12 months) to successfully complete Gateway.
