Our Bottom Line


Our Bottom Line

Our commitment to keeping a Drew education affordable is continual. That’s why we lowered tuition by 20% in fall 2018, a rollback to fall 2010 levels, which provides even greater access to the benefits of a Drew education for even more families. And our generous scholarships and need-based financial aid lower costs even more.

Drew is a Top 10 Best Buy!

Drew University is one of 10 private schools on Fiske’s Best Buy list, and it’s the only New Jersey school—public or private—in the Top 20.

From the beginning, Drew demonstrated a commitment to do all that was possible to make (our daughter’s) dream a reality. The admissions counselor worked directly with the financial aid office to advocate for our needs. I knew then that the Drew community would treat us like a family member instead of a stranger. ”

The staff in the financial aid office were incredibly helpful, approachable and understanding. Drew has become my second home. ”
