  • You must indicate your partnership affiliation code on your application when you apply to receive your tuition reduction. If you neglect to do so, you may submit an e-mail to your Partnership Liaison (see above) indicating your affiliation and requesting that the appropriate code be added to your application record.
  • This information must be received by the end of the second week of classes for the term you are applying to in order for the tuition reduction to be applied to the upcoming term. If it is not, your reduced tuition rate will be applied to the next available term.
  • Students receiving special tuition plans with Drexel Online may not combine them with other tuition benefits that may be available from Drexel University.
  • The tuition savings listed in the table above applies only to new online matriculated students. If multiple discounts apply, students will be given the discount that is most favorable to them.
  • Rates for spouses and family members may differ for specific programs.

Drexel University works hard to make sure that every student can afford tuition to earn their top-ranked degree online. While every program has its own tuition rate, we offer special reduced rates for alumni and students affiliated with the military and various partnered organizations. Discounted tuition rates do not apply to on-campus residencies.

Apply Early

It's important to submit your application as soon as possible to be deemed eligible for assistance. If you anticipate being dependent on federal loan or grant programs in order to start classes at Drexel, be aware that any federal loan or grant money you qualify for will not be available to you until after you've submitted all of the following:

Drexel's application deadlines are designed to assure that you're admitted in time to obtain textbooks and complete other start-up and orientation activities, but may not allow sufficient time to guarantee processing of financial aid requests.

Timely receipt of financial aid funds also assumes that you pre-register for courses and promptly respond to additional financial aid requests such as signing promissory notes, completion of federally required entrance counseling, and supplying documentation if selected for verification.
