Dear Students,

It has been so exciting to see the energy return to campus this week, as new students join our Drexel community. To our New Dragons — Welcome to the start of your Drexel experience! — and to our returning Dragons, we are thrilled to have you back as classes and campus operations resume in full force next week.

To facilitate a smooth start to the 2021-2022 academic year, we've created the following webpage with frequently asked questions about the academic experience this fall term. This page includes reminders about the following topics, among others, and will be updated as new information becomes available:

  • Classroom Health and Safety
  • Protocol for Potential COVID-19 Exposure in the Classroom
  • Student and Faculty Class Absences
  • Academic Reminders
  • Health and Wellness Resources

If you have any additional questions related to academics, research or the classroom experience, please reach out to us at I look forward to seeing and meeting many of you in the coming weeks!
