Application Information

If submitting supplemental materials through the Common Application system for Early Action deadlines, please note:

The Common Application recently upgraded their application services, but there are a number of problems with the new system. As such, Drexel University may not have received all of the supporting materials you have submitted on behalf of your students.

We have sent an email to students who applied using one of Drexel's Early Action options advising them of the Common Application situation and asking that they check their application status on the Discover Drexel Portal to ensure it correctly reflects the documents they submitted. You may want to check with your students to make sure they have done this. They can log in to the Discover Drexel Portal using their Drexel student ID and personal identification number (PIN) found in the application status update emails they have received from us.

If a student has checked their application status on the Discover Drexel Portal, but is concerned that we did not receive documents that you submitted through the Common Application system, we strongly suggest that you resubmit the documents to us using one of the following methods:

Fax: 215-895-1285
Postal Mail: Drexel University, Application Processing, PO Box 34789, Philadelphia, PA 19101
