Drake’s Office of Admission will review applications and transcripts and determine whether or not a student will be approved for exchange. While English proficiency is it not a prerequisite for approval for the exchange, language skills will determine which courses a student may take. Click here for more information about English proficiency requirements.
Students who are approved for exchange will be notified by the Office of International Programs and Services. The International Office of the student’s home university will also be notified. Approved students will then complete the remainder of Drake's application process. Proof of Finances is not required to be approved for exchange, but must be received before a DS-2109 can be issued for a visa. Click here for a summary of the exchange application process.
Note: Approval for exchange allows enrollment for the period of exchange only; it does not imply admission to a degree program. International students who wish to seek a degree at Drake should apply for full admission.
