Drew offers college graduates the opportunity to attend undergraduate course/s for credit in preparation for a new career or for advanced degree work.  Post-Baccalaureate students may have access to all academic and extracurricular resources offered at Drew and earn a Drew transcript.

This program is intended for students who need additional undergraduate course work in an area other than the major pursued during their BA or BS.  Post-Baccalaureate students are held to the same academic standards as other Drew undergraduates and have access to the same academic resources and activities as other students in the department.

Post-baccalaureate students who need additional undergraduate course work in math and the sciences in preparation for application to medical or other health professions school should apply through the Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Preparation Program.

Please be aware that Drew University does not offer a second BA program; the Post-Baccalaureate Program does not lead to the awarding of a degree from Drew.
