Aid Packaging Process

Once you have completed the necessary steps to apply for financial aid, Drexel Central can create a financial aid package for you. A financial aid package is a summary of all the federal, state and institutional financial aid awards you are eligible to receive based upon your program, status, cost of attendance, and FAFSA information.

A completed financial aid package includes the following information:

  • Itemized list of all the financial aid awards you are eligible to receive for the academic year
  • Cost of Attendance for the academic year
  • List of requirements you must complete in order to receive your financial aid

Newly accepted students receive a financial award letter in the mail detailing this information; additionally, a PDF of the award letter is available on the Discover Drexel Portal.

Continuing students receive an e-mail notification once their financial aid package is complete and will be able to view the information via their DrexelOne account:

  • Log in to Drexel One
  • Select the "Billing and Financial Aid" tab
  • Select the "My Financial Aid Information" link in the "Resources" channel
  • Select the academic year you are looking for
  • Click the "awarded" hyperlink
  • Select the "Award Overview" tab

If subsequent changes are made to your financial aid award package, a revised financial aid award notification will be sent to you.
