On days they are held, admission information sessions begin at 11:15 a.m. and conclude before noon. Information sessions are scheduled to coordinate with campus tours, which begin at 10 a.m. and noon.

Academic Day Visits
Academic Day visits give admitted students a chance to see what it is like to be a student at Drew. Typically, students sit in on two classes (self-selected based on their interests – see below), have lunch with current students, take a campus tour, and if possible, sit in on a club meeting with the hosting student.
This visit opportunity is best suited for students that have been admitted to the university. If you have questions about the type of visit that may be best for you, please call us at 973-408-3739 and we are happy to assist you.
Interested? Follow these steps:
- Browse through our course list
(Choose a term, then either select a filter or just choose
