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.

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.
