CARES Act Funding for Students

Drexel students may be eligible for funds through the Federal CARES Act Emergency Grant. These funds have been made available by the Federal Government and are intended to provide financial assistance to students with expenses resulting from the disruption of campus operations in response to COVID-19.

Eligible students were notified via email that they could apply for the Federal CARES Act Emergency Grant. All students who are approved for funding will receive payment via direct deposit. Students not already signed up for direct deposit can learn how to set that up on Drexel Central's Direct Deposit page.

Winter Entry Option Now Available

We are excited to announce that the University is launching a Winter Entry Program for the upcoming 2020–2021 academic year! This program will provide you the option to start your first year of college in the winter quarter, starting January 2021. As a Winter Entry student, you will receive the same level of academic rigor and preparation your first year as your peers starting in the fall; you will be eligible for the same resources and campus activities; and when you begin your second year, you will be at the same point in your plan of study as your fall entry peers.

Applications for our Winter Entry Program are now open. It's important to note that this option is separate from transferring to Drexel and is only open to students who have not previously enrolled in a degree program at a college or university prior to January 2021.

Given the level of uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic has created, Drexel recognizes the need for more flexibility in offering first year students like yourself new opportunities. We hope that this option will allow you to still choose to attend a world class institution according to your timeline.

Drexel Adopts Test-Optional Admissions Policy for Fall 2021

Drexel is committed to helping students in any way that we can, and we're happy to announce that we have adopted a Test-Optional policy to streamline the process for first-year applicants applying for admission for fall 2021.

Under this Test-Optional policy, you will be able to choose whether you wish to submit standardized test scores to be considered as part of your application to Drexel. And if you do decide to submit scores, you'll have the option of following our Test-Flexible option to determine which scores are submitted. We feel this will allow for greater flexibility to meet your individual circumstances and hope it will alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling regarding the college admissions process.

It is important to note that international applicants will still need to submit standardized test results to demonstrate English language proficiency, and that BS/BA+MD Early Assurance applicants, along with applicants interested in some of our accelerated degree programs, will still be required to submit SAT or ACT scores. More information about our Test-Optional policy can be found at our Standardized Test Policies page.

Our University remains focused on assisting you throughout this difficult time. If there are any questions we can answer or if there is any additional assistance we can provide, please do not hesitate to contact us at 215.895.2400 or via

Enrollment Deadline for Admitted First-Year Students Is May 1

Admitted Early Action and Regular Decision first-year students must enroll by submitting a tuition deposit and a housing deposit on or before May 1, unless otherwise indicated in their admission letter.
