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 options to provide all prospective sophomore, junior, senior and transfer students limited opportunities to explore Drake in-person with adherence to health and safety guidelines. In addition, all prospective students can participate in an array of virtual programs.

Ongoing updates from the University are available on the COVID-19 Response website.
