Currently, COVID cases are increasing. Please take precautions.

Some Drexel campus spaces (including classrooms) are once again "Masks Required" and others are "Masks Optional." However, we strongly recommend wearing a mask in shared spaces.

Masks are still REQUIRED in:

  • All classrooms, laboratories and studios that are being used for lectures or instructional purposes.
  • Disability Resources testing spaces.
  • Ticketed events in Mandell and the Urban Annex Black Box Theaters, and dance studios (attendees must wear masks).
  • All health care facilities—including, but not limited to: Student Health Services, Occupational Health Services and the Counseling Center.
  • All health care rotations in the College of Nursing and Health Professions and College of Medicine, and co-op health care positions.

Masks are OPTIONAL in:

  • Non-clinical office spaces and meeting rooms
  • Drexel University Libraries
  • Shared workspaces (unless in health care settings)
  • Research spaces (unless when the space is being used for a class or if masking is required for research purposes)
  • Common areas of buildings including restrooms, stairwells and elevators
  • Drexel shuttles
  • University Housing (unless you are isolating in place)
  • The Drexel Recreation Center and the Daskalakis Athletic Center

You should always continue to carry a well-fitting mask and be ready to enter a mask required space as needed.

    Please remember that you should always stay home if you are sick, and always be aware that you can choose to wear your mask.

    Statement from the Office of Admissions Regarding Academic Work and MCAT Tests Affected by the COVID-19 Outbreak

    The Office of Admissions would like to address the concerns of MD Program applicants during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is causing unprecedented disruption to academic work and MCAT testing.

    Please be advised of the following:

    • The Admissions Committee will accept Pass/Fail, online, and courses not taken at an applicant’s “home school” without penalty to the applicant.
    • MCATs from 2022 will only be accepted for special program students.
    • Applicants will not be penalized for experiences they had planned to complete or participate in that were impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic.
    • All applicants will receive a secondary application. Applicants with complete files who indicate they intend to sit for a future MCAT testing in 2022 will be held for review until the results of that testing have been received.
