Drexel considers many criteria when determining admission, including the applicant's application, official transcripts, courses in progress, two recommendations, standardized test scores (SAT or ACT), and essay. Applicants to the Nutrition and Foods program must have completed three years of high school mathematics (algebra I and II and geometry) and two years of a laboratory science (biology, chemistry, or physics). To be considered a transfer student, candidates should have completed a minimum of 24 college credits. Drexel operates on a rolling admission basis, which means that students will be notified about the admission decision as soon as possible after their files are complete.
March 1 is the due date for freshmen applications. August 15 is the due date for transfer applications.
