William Sidney Pittman Graduation Ceremony

Join us in virtually celebrating the accomplishments of Drexel's graduating students of the African diaspora at the William Sidney Pittman Graduation Ceremony. William S. Pittman was the first African American graduate at Drexel. Each year, in his honor, we recognize all graduates of the African diaspora whose legacy and contributions to their respective fields have paved the way for success of others in their educational, personal, and professional endeavors. Hosted by the Center for Black Culture, this year's virtual event will be livestreamed online on May 26 at 6 p.m.

The ceremony includes two important traditions: the donning of the Drexel kente stole, symbolizing the excellence and contributions of students of the African diaspora at Drexel University, and a recognition of both an undergraduate and graduate student with specialized awards. Originating in West Africa in the 12th century, the kente cloth is a ceremonial garment that carries a deep, personal significance for the wearer. The placing of the kente stole is a significant moment in the ceremony, as each participant will choose someone special to take part in this celebratory moment. You are also encouraged to nominate a student for the 2021 William S. Pittman Awards. Visit the Pittman Graduation Ceremony page for more details and to nominate a deserving student!

Drexel's Test-Optional Admission Policy for 2022–2023 and 2023–2024

Drexel is committed to helping students in any way that we can, and we're happy to announce that we are continuing our Test-Optional policy to streamline the process for first-year applicants applying for admission for fall 2022 and fall 2023.

Under this Test-Optional policy, you are 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 allows for greater flexibility to meet your individual circumstances and hope it will alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling regarding the college admission process.

It is important to note that international applicants still need to submit standardized test results to demonstrate English language proficiency, and that BS/BA+MD Early Assurance applicants are still required to submit SAT or ACT scores.
