Applications and all transcripts should be received at least six weeks prior to the start of the desired term of enrollment. Admission is on a rolling basis. Refer to the Academic Calendar for term start dates.
Drexel assumes that you've completed coursework similar to Drexel's curriculum. To be considered for admission as a transfer student, you should have completed a minimum of 24 semester credits from a regionally accredited institution. If you have fewer than 24 semester credits, you will also need to submit your high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores.

Official transcripts are required from all colleges and universities that you've attended, and they must be sent directly from your college to Drexel. You may print the Transcript Request Form [PDF] and use it to request official transcripts from your school counselor and/or registrar. Transcripts should include all courses in progress. If you have completed fewer than 24 semester credits at the time of application, you must also submit an official copy of your high school transcript. In most circumstances, a high school transcript can be considered if the graduation date is no more than two years from the date of enrollment at Drexel.
International applicants are required to submit an official academic record (with notarized English translation) from every secondary or postsecondary school attended. A transcript is official only when it is sent directly from an institution to Admissions, or when it is officially signed, stamped in color, and sealed.
Non-degree applicants are not required to submit transcripts.
Test Scores (SAT, ACT, TOEFL)
You must take either the SAT or ACT and request that the results be forwarded to Admissions. Test scores are not required for transfer applicants who have completed 24 semester credits. Applicants whose native language is not English are required to take the TOEFL or IELTS. Test scores are valid up to two years from the test date.
All students should use the following codes to send score reports to Drexel: SAT and TOEFL: 2194 or ACT: 3556.
Non-degree and certificate applicants are not required to submit test scores.

Admission Decision Appeals
An applicant who has been denied admission to the University may appeal. Reversals on a decision are rare, and if considered, are done based on changes in the applicant's academic criteria, or personal circumstances that could not be considered adequately through the standard admission review process.
An applicant appealing a decision should compose a letter to the Academic Appeal Chairperson stating the reason for the appeal and provide updated documentation. The appeal should be clear and concise, and provide new information. Your letter should not repeat information already presented in your initial application. The appeal should be emailed to the attention of the Academic Appeal Committee Chairperson at email@example.com.
Notification of the decision of the committee is final and will be made known to the applicant by mail within two to three weeks.
Transfer of College Coursework
Drexel may grant you credit for courses completed at a college or university that is either regionally accredited or a recognized candidate for accreditation according to the Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission of Higher Education.
To receive transfer credit for courses completed at another institution, the courses must be substantially equivalent to courses offered in the desired curriculum at Drexel and you must have completed the courses with a grade of C (C=2.0) or better. The number of credits you can transfer will be determined by your department once you've been accepted.
