Applying To Come To Drake on Exchange

 

An application to study at Drake as an exchange student has several parts:

  • a completed, signed application form
  • a transcript of courses completed and grades earned
  • a list of courses currently in progress
  • an essay explaining why a semester or year at Drake is important to you
  • English language proficiency test scores (or a desire to study English as a Second Language)
  • Proof of Finances to cover estimated costs of the exchange
  • a "wish list" of courses to be studied at Drake
  • Law students ONLY, must also submit a Law School Honor Code form.


The first four items in this list must be sent by April 1 (for fall arrival) or Oct. 1 (for spring arrival) to:
    Carlyn Marron, Assistant Director
    International Programs and Services
    Drake University
    2507 University Ave.
    Des Moines, IA  50311
    carlyn.marron@drake.edu
    Fax: 515-271-4588
    Phone: 515-271-2084

The final four items for an application should also be sent to Carlyn Marron, either with the application form or as soon as possible thereafter.  A DS-2019 document, which is required to get a J-1 student visa, cannot be issued until a Proof of Finances form has been received.
