Transfer students traditionally attend Drexel University for three academic years and complete two six-month co-operative experiences. There is also the option of completing one six-month co-operative experience within the three academic years.
While, every student brings in a different number of transfer credits, a typical transfer student comes to Drexel having completed the majority of the freshmen year curriculum and most general education electives.
For a typical plan of study, see Transfer Matrix (2018 and beyond) and Transfer Student Matrix (2016 and beyond).
Note: Equivalents to MATH 121, MATH 122, and MATH 200 must be transferred in for a transfer student to not delay their graduation from Drexel University.
The typical progression of courses that transfer students must take to get to the senior capstone course is:
Term 1 – MATH 201, CHE 220, CHE 211
Term 2 – MATH 210, CHE 230, CHE 212
Term 3 – CHE 350, CHE 341, CHE 330
Term 4 – CHE 320, CHE 342, CHE 343, CHE 351, CHE 371
Term 5 – CHE 471, CHE 331, CHE 453, CHE 362, CHE 464
Term 6 – CHE 472, CHE 352, CHE 372
Term 7 – CHE 473, CHE 466
The remaining requirements are scheduled as they fit into the schedule depending on the student's plan of study.
It is recommended that a transfer student meets with the departmental academic advisor in their first or second term at Drexel University so a clear plan can be created and all questions can be addressed.
