Cost of Attendance
The University provides students with individualized cost of attendance breakdowns via DrexelOne, which include estimates of tuition, fee, room and board, personal, transportation, and book/supply costs based upon major and expected enrollment. This breakdown is used in calculating financial aid eligibility, and can be used by students and their families to plan their finances for Drexel. Your total financial aid package cannot exceed the university’s cost of attendance. Awards that make up a financial aid package include grants, scholarships, loans, work-study, and scholarships from private organizations.
Drexel Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund (SEF) was established as a partnership between Student Life, Institutional Advancement, and Drexel Central to support students who are in need of immediate financial assistance due to unexpected emergency expenses. The SEF is designed to provide one-time funding for temporary hardships such as accidents, illness, death of a family member, or natural disasters.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application used to determine students’ eligibility for federal and state financial aid. U.S. citizens and permanent residents should complete a FAFSA each year they are enrolled at least part-time at Drexel.
