International Students: Launch Your Future
Drew University is located on a beautiful, wooded, 186-acre campus called The Forest. Our campus is in Madison, New Jersey, a bustling suburban town that has one of the lowest crimes rates in the United States and is just a 50-minute train ride away from New York City.
Drew is a vibrant, diverse, friendly, personal and generous place. Here in The Forest, students are empowered to find their best selves in a wealth of campus activity and a world of wider opportunity.
Our combinations of majors and programs, hundreds of internships and research opportunities, one-of-a-kind NYC semesters, numerous study abroad offerings and personal mentoring by stellar faculty guarantees purpose-driven, experience-based career readiness for every student, steeped in a connection to a lifelong, worldwide community.
This is exemplified through Launch, our unique undergraduate experience, which ensures that every student graduates with a purpose, sought-after transferable skills, a network of mentors and an experience-based résumé. Every Drew student graduates with at least two résumé-ready applied experiences and a combination of transferable skills that work across all paths and careers. Guaranteed.

**All foreign college/university transcripts must be submitted to an outside agency such as the World Education Services (WES) for evaluation. Once the transcript has been evaluated the agency will forward the record to Drew along with the original transcript.
International students can qualify for merit-based scholarships, which are based on previous academic achievement. These scholarships do not require any additional application, so you’ll be automatically considered at the point of admission.
In addition to these merit scholarships, first-year students may also apply for Drew Action Scholars and the Drew Scholarship for the Arts. Drew Action Scholars is for students committed to community, innovation and global impact in a connected world. The Drew Scholarship for the Arts is for students who excel in the arts and plan to be an active member of the art community at Drew.
Need-Based Financial Assistance
Limited need-based funds are available to international students who submit the International Student Financial Aid Application. Students are encouraged to apply early while maximum funds are available to offer.
