Transfer Students

More transfer student stories 

You’ve already started to make your mark in the world. Let Drake give you a powerful edge in it.

Perhaps you’re nearing completion of your associate’s degree and are looking for what’s next. Or your current four-year college doesn't quite "fit," or no longer meets your academic needs. Or maybe you took a few years away from college and are testing the waters before diving back in.

Whatever your situation, Drake has the programs, people, and scholarships in place to leverage the hard work you’ve already done to reach your goals without adding unnecessary years to your program. Even better, our dedicated transfer counselors will make sure you benefit from all of the scholarships and financial aid resources that are available just for you—in fact, some students find that after scholarships, a Drake education is more economical than a state school.

As for the value of a Drake education, that goes without saying. Because Drake is recognized as one of the best universities in the Midwest, your degree tells future employers that you’re highly qualified, professionally prepared, and ready to contribute to a team from Day One.

Your personal guide to the transfer process

Your transfer admission counselor will be there for you every step of the way—from helping you navigate financial aid, transfer credit evaluation, and degree planning to providing ongoing support and connecting you to key players in your academic and career interests.
