Conditional Admission Program
For international undergraduate students who meet our admission criteria but may benefit from additional language preparation, Drexel offers the International Gateway program. Students in the Gateway program receive a foundation year of study, full immersion into campus life, and dedicated student resources. Gateway students spend 9–12 months on campus preparing to matriculate to a Drexel undergraduate major after completing the program.
Benefits of the program include:
- Completing up to 21 transferable credits in core coursework topics such as Math, Chemistry, Communications, and Philosophy.
- Academic English preparation and support.
- On- and off-campus housing options.
- The Intercultural Community Bridge Program, which connects Gateway students with other Drexel students and community members to share experiences and culture.
- Access to all of Drexel's campus facilities and resources, and the chance to engage in campus life.
