Drexel University is committed to supporting students currently enrolled or just starting their college experience at the University of the Arts as they consider the next step in their educational careers. The University stands with UArts students, their family, and the creative community.

“We understand how difficult this transition time will be for UArts students and their families,” said Drexel President John Fry. “Drexel’s leadership has been in close contact with senior leadership at UArts to offer our assistance to the UArts community and especially the students who can no longer continue their studies at the institution. We have already reached out to current students, first-year students and many high school counselors, and are committed to making enrolling at Drexel for these students as seamless and welcoming as possible. In addition, we are expanding our 50 percent tuition discount program for community college partners to UArts undergraduate students interested in attending Drexel.”

Drexel is developing a pathway that will help University of the Arts students continue their education as seamlessly as possible during this challenging time of transition and will allow them to stay on track and finish their degree in our supportive community as a Drexel Dragon. The University's dedicated Admissions teams will offer individual counseling sessions and connections to academic representatives. Drexel will fully guide students and families through this transition and ensure clarity through the admissions and financial aid process while minimizing any potential disruptions.

As a national leader in the creative community, Drexel’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design offers a comprehensive catalog of undergraduate and graduate degree programs housed in award-winning facilities that encourage collaboration across creative disciplines in the fields of media, entertainment, design, and the visual and performing arts. In addition, Drexel’s School of Education, College of Arts and Sciences, Goodwin College of Professional Studies, and many others also provide dynamic creative degree programs designed to offer experiential learning opportunities and industry-leading faculty. Drexel prepares and empowers the next generation of creative professionals to contribute to, and lead in, the fast-growing creative economy.

Recognizing that this transition time is disruptive for families, the Drexel community stands ready to support all students who are navigating these challenges. Learn more about the UArts-Drexel Pathway.
