Prospective Graduate Students

Prospective Graduate Students

Welcome. We are pleased you want Drexel’s College of Engineering to be a part of your future. Acceptance for graduate study at Drexel requires a four-year bachelor’s degree in a STEM or related field from an accredited institution in the US or equivalent international institution. Although admission requirements vary by program, regular acceptance typically requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B) for the last two years of undergraduate work. Individual departments may have their own requirements exceeding this measure.

The admission committee evaluates all credentials submitted by applicants to determine a student's ability and potential to succeed in graduate study. In addition, the committee is interested in the applicant's potential to contribute to his/her program of study and to the University community as a whole.

Admission Process

The collection of application materials is handled by the central Graduate Admissions office at the university. Individual programs have specific deadlines and requirements. Please refer to engineering's program requirements and deadlines for more information.
