Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply early.
  • Keep your grades up. Higher grades translate into actual scholarships.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Get on the smallest meal plan possible—particularly one with more "dollars."
  • It's more technical/vocational-oriented than academically-oriented (but they're working on that).
  • It's not a big party school.
  • It's not good for people to be undecided about their majors.
  • Nursing and health science major classes are in Center City.
  • Students get 10 percent off ComPass if they go through Drexel and need a rail pass as a commuting student.
  • The "Drexel shaft" exists.
  • You get tested constantly—with four 10-week terms per year.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call (800) 2-DREXEL on any weekday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Interviews must be made by appointment
Campus Tours
Campus tours run most Mondays through Fridays (except on holidays, between semesters, during finals, and during spring break). Call in advance to sign up for a scheduled tour! Find some students in the quad or at the Daskalakis Athletic Center. Most students at Drexel can be very helpful if you take the initiative to introduce yourself and ask them nicely for help.
Overnight Visits
Overnight visits are available upon request. Typically, an overnight visitor can expect to meet a ton of new people around the dorms and even more at the house parties their mentors usually take them to. Overnight visitors are also able to sit in on a class or two with their mentor the following day (assuming their mentor actually goes to class).
