Drake University knows what college transfer students need to make a seamless change from there to here. Whether you’re a community college transfer or coming from another four-year school, Drake will connect you with a transfer counselor and financial aid expert and ensure you get support from peers. Check out the visit options tailored for transfer students and come see us.
Do you have specific people or places you’d like to see during your visit? We can create a personalized, weekday visit agenda for you. You’ll meet with an admission counselor, take a student-led tour, and enjoy lunch on campus. Meetings with specific faculty or staff members can be requested with a week’s notice (for juniors, seniors, and transfer students only).
Your day will include a student-led campus tour, lunch, and a meeting with an admission counselor. Academic appointments can be requested up to a week in advance.
This includes everything in Your Drake Day visit, plus a Q&A student panel, an academic meeting, lunch and a chance to meet Griff, Drake’s live mascot.
Evening appointments in Drake’s Office of Admission are available on select dates. During your appointment, you can even get your college acceptance on the spot!
