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.
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.
Transfer students may register for a Drake individual visit, which will include a student-guided campus tour and a meeting with an admission counselor.
