We are excited to announce that the University is continuing to offer it's Winter Entry Program for the upcoming 2021–2022 academic year! This program provides you the option to start your first year of college in the winter quarter, starting January 2022. As a Winter Entry student, you will receive the same level of academic rigor and preparation your first year as your peers starting in the fall; you will be eligible for the same resources and campus activities; and when you begin your second year, you will be at the same point in your plan of study as your fall entry peers.

Applications for our Winter Entry Program will open on August 1, and the application fee will be waived for students applying to the Winter Entry Program — just make sure you select the fee waiver option when submitting your Common Application or Coalition Application. It's important to note that this option is separate from transferring to Drexel and is only open to students who have not previously enrolled in a degree program at a college or university prior to January 2022.

University Closed to Observe Juneteenth on June 18

June 11, 2021

Drexel University offices, including Admissions, will be closed on Friday, June 18 to allow time to observe Juneteenth.

Juneteenth commemorates the effective end of slavery in the United States. Although President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation was declared on January 1, 1863, slavery continued through the Civil War. It was not until June 19, 1865 in Galveston, Texas, following the end of the war and the arrival of federal troops, that those enslaved were freed. The National Museum of African American History and Culture calls Juneteenth "our country's second Independence Day." The widespread celebration of the anniversary dates back to the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s. Today, it includes official acknowledgements in almost every state, as well as events sponsored by the Smithsonian and other institutions to expand awareness and embrace Black contributions to the history and culture of this country.

Memorial Day Holiday on May 31

Drexel's Test-Optional Admission Policy for 2022–2023 and 2023–2024

March 08, 2021

Drexel is committed to helping students in any way that we can, and we're happy to announce that we are continuing our Test-Optional policy to streamline the process for first-year applicants applying for admission for fall 2022 and fall 2023.

Under this Test-Optional policy, you are able to choose whether you wish to submit standardized test scores to be considered as part of your application to Drexel. And if you do decide to submit scores, you'll have the option of following our Test-Flexible option to determine which scores are submitted. We feel this allows for greater flexibility to meet your individual circumstances and hope it will alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling regarding the college admission process.

It is important to note that international applicants still need to submit standardized test results to demonstrate English language proficiency, and that BS/BA+MD Early Assurance applicants are still required to submit SAT or ACT scores. More information about our Test-Optional policy can be found at our Standardized Test Policies page.

Our University remains focused on assisting you throughout this difficult time. If there are any questions we can answer or if there is any additional assistance we can provide, please do not hesitate to contact us at 215.895.2400 or via
