Congratulations on your admission to Drexel University! This is a time of celebration and an opportunity to prepare for what comes next. We are proud to officially welcome you as a Drexel Dragon and are excited to see the amazing things you will accomplish here. You have been waiting for your chance to bring a new vision to the world and shape a brighter tomorrow. That opportunity begins now.
Our University is emerging from the past year-plus of uncertainty, fully focused on moving forward. We are excited that we will be returning to a normal experience this fall, with in-person teaching and a vibrant campus life. A newfound sense of optimism is leading the way — and we want you to be a part of it. To get you started, we’ve built this Admitted Student Virtual Experience to show you how, at Drexel, you’ll find the knowledge, guidance, and direction that will allow you to push beyond all expectations and turn your aspiration into achievement. We encourage you to return often, as this virtual experience is a living, breathing exploration of what makes this such an amazing place.
Again, we welcome you to Drexel. You’re ready for what comes next. Because the moment can’t wait.

Drexel’s cooperative education program allows our Dragons to gain the professional experience they need to succeed within their chosen fields after graduation. Through Drexel Co-op, students can gain up to three six-month, full-time professional work experiences. Even better, they can earn a salary while doing so, as over 80% of positions are paid and carry a gross median six-month salary of over $18,000.

Preparing for a Changing World: Co‑op is the Future of Work
Over 125 years ago, Drexel University's founder, Anthony J. Drexel, had a vision to create an institution that would empower every student to graduate from Drexel ready to begin their career. Drexel Co-op allows us to meet this
challenge. This innovative program prepares our Dragons to meet the challenges of the modern workplace by allowing them to learn within it. Through co-op, students gain up to 18 months of résumé-enhancing
experience working alongside industry professionals and test-drive career options – all before graduation.
