  • Drexel University Readmission Process



    If you've previously attended Drexel University, you may need to apply for readmission in order to enroll in our online programs.

    How do I know whether I need to apply for readmission?

    You need to apply for readmission if you meet any of the following criteria:

    • I was academically dismissed, not reinstated, and did not return for the next quarter or semester*
    • I took a leave of absence for four or more quarters/three or more semesters
    • I have not registered for courses or been enrolled for four or more consecutive quarters/ three or more consecutive semesters (one full academic year)
    • I have completed a degree program at Drexel University and wish to enroll in another program within the same degree level

    You do NOT need to apply for readmission if you meet any of the following criteria:

    • I did not officially withdraw or was not dismissed from Drexel AND have not been enrolled in classes for less than a year (four consecutive quarters or three consecutive semesters)
    • I have graduated, or am a previous non-degree, non-matriculated, or visiting student applying to a degree granting program
    • I have only previously enrolled as a graduate/professional student at Drexel and am now looking to attend an undergraduate program

    *Students who have been permanently dismissed are not eligible for readmission.

    Okay, I meet one of the readmission criteria above, what next?

    Applicants for Fall 2017, Winter 2018, Spring 2018, Summer 2018

    Applicants for Fall 2018 or later

    What do I need to prepare before applying for readmission?

    1. Resolve any current holds on my record
      1. The most common holds are financial, academic, and judicial (student conduct). To learn if you have a hold, please log in via DrexelOne.
    2. Contact Drexel Central to re-establish my financial aid (if applicable)
    3. Have a list of any academic institutions I attended while away from Drexel and request my official transcripts from those institutions
      1. TIP: Request official transcripts early as they can take some time to process and arrive
    4. Prepare my readmission statement
