Drexel School of Education Admissions Process

Undergraduate Admissions Process

For most undergraduates, Drexel's undergraduate admissions process is fairly straightforward. It begins with completing an application, which includes an essay of intent, two letters of recommendation, and submission of official transcripts from previous schools. For most applicants, standardized test scores are optional, and some programs may require or encourage you to submit a portfolio.

If you apply as a regular decision candidate, you'll need to reply and accept your invitation before the associated deadline, and observe deadlines for financial aid applications. With few exceptions, the undergraduate admissions process follows those guidelines.

Graduate Admissions Process

By contrast, the admissions process for graduate programs is far less standardized. Prospective students may be required to interview, submit a resume, complete standardized testing, or obtain relevant certifications.

For those considering a PhD or doctoral degree, your program may have its own set of requirements which may differ from other graduate programs.

Enrollment periods for each program are just as varied, with some enrolling for the fall during the spring, or only offering enrollment annually. Along with a rotating schedule, it's critical to monitor application deadlines well ahead of time by reviewing Drexel’s registration schedule.

Whether you are earning an undergraduate degree or entering a graduate or doctoral program, college application resources -- like experienced counselors -- can make navigating the enrollment process much easier.
