The Office of Admission is taking precautions to protect our students, faculty and staff, and prospective students from the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We have updated our visit programs to provide prospective students opportunities to explore Drake remotely. All on-campus group programs and individual visits through August have been canceled or moved online.
Ongoing updates from the University are available on the COVID-19 Response website.
