Benefits Overview

Drexel University is pleased to offer comprehensive and competitive benefits to eligible employees and their eligible dependents. Benefits-eligible employees of Drexel University and the Academy of Natural Sciences can enroll themselves and their dependents either upon hire (to be effective the first of the following month), during the open enrollment period or if they experience a qualified life event.

To be eligible for Drexel’s health and welfare benefits, you must be employed in a benefits-eligible position on a regular University payroll and work at least 20 hours per week.
