For Prospective Undergraduates

Come See The Forest For Yourself.

Discover Drew Day

Join us on campus and discover Drew for yourself. No mega open houses here— our more intimate Discover Drew Days, allow you to spend just a few hours “in the forest” and hear from current students, take a tour and meet faculty members who could become your real-life Yoda.

Campus Tours and Information Sessions

There’s no substitute for the real thing; come for a tour and see Drew’s beauty and feel its energy. Hour-long student-led campus tours depart from Wesley House. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in. If special assistance is necessary, please note that we require at least two weeks notice. Information sessions give prospective students and parents the opportunity to meet with admission counselors, explore our programs, learn about admission and enrollment procedures and ask questions.

Tours are offered Monday–Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Some Saturday tours will also be available. A brief information session will be held prior to each tour. Tours may not be offered on some holidays and open house dates.

Schedule an Interview

We strongly recommend a personal interview. Beyond your application, recommendations and transcripts, a one-on-one admissions interview allows us to learn more about you, your passions and discuss how Drew may be the right choice for you. An interview will not only enhance chances for admission, but also, if eligible, for the Baldwin Honors, Asbury, Presidential or Dean’s academic merit scholarships as well as for the Civic Engagement Scholarship. Selected candidates for the 7-year dual degree BA/MD program will be invited to participate in a required admissions interview.

Interviews for applicants applying for Fall 2018 should be completed by February 28th.
Current high school juniors are encouraged to schedule interviews beginning this spring.

Academic Day Visits

Academic Day Visits give high school seniors an inside look at what it is like to be a student at Drew. Typically, students sit in on one or two classes. Our admissions staff will work with faculty to select courses that best match your academic interests. During the visit there are also opportunities to have lunch with current students and take a campus tour.

If you have questions about the type of visit that may be best for you, please call us at 973-408-DREW and we are happy to assist you.

Join Us On the Road

Drew Admissions will also be crisscrossing the country and traveling around the world to meet you in your neighborhood. You’ll have several opportunities to meet your admissions counselor, current students, faculty or alumni.

In addition to visiting high schools and attending college fairs, you can see us in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Florida, Boston, Hartford and the Washington, D.C. area for a Drew on the Road event.  These sessions are great to learn more about Drew and to interview one-on-one without needing to come to campus.
