    Provide transcripts from all colleges and universities attended. Unofficial copies of your transcripts may be uploaded as part of your admission application or through Drexel Access after you submit your application. At a later date you may be required to have official copies of your transcripts sent directly to Drexel.

  • Standardized Test Scores

    GRE test scores are required; minimum score varies.

    The GRE psychology subject test is recommended.

    TOEFL scores are required for international applicants or applicants who earned a degree outside the U.S. (minimum scores: 100/600/250). Scores will be reviewed based on section scores and total scores. IELTS scores may be submitted in lieu of TOEFL scores.

  • Essay

    As part of your admission application, you will be required to write a personal statement (up to 9,000 characters) that discusses and integrates your research experiences and interests, and how these fit into the Drexel program and into a specific faculty member or research group's work in particular.

  • Résumé

    You are required to upload your curriculum vitae or résumé as part of your admission application.

  • Letters of Recommendation

    Three letters of recommendation are required. To electronically request recommendations, you must list your recommenders and their contact information on your application. We advise that you follow up with your recommenders to ensure they received your recommendation request — they may need to check their junk mail folder. Additionally, it is your responsibility to confirm that your recommenders will submit letters by your application deadline and follow up with recommenders who have not completed their recommendations.

  • Interview

    In-person interview required for select applicants beginning in March or early April.
