International Students: Launch Your Life.
Step on to Drew’s campus and you will see why it is called “The Forest.” Here you’ll find interactive classes where professors know you by name and faculty mentors who are your real-life Yoda.
Set in suburban New Jersey just 26 miles west of New York City, Drew offers one-of-a-kind semesters in the Big Apple that cover everything from the United Nations, Wall Street and theatre to media and communications, contemporary art and social entrepreneurship.
Also, the many corporate headquarters and research laboratories in our neighborhood sponsor academic internships that put our students on a path to success around the world.
*Items are part of the Common Application
**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 merit scholarships, first-year students may also apply for a Civic Engagement Scholarship and a Drew Scholarship for the Arts. The Civic Engagement Scholarship rewards students for community service while 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.
INTO Drew University offers innovative programs for international students who may not meet the requirements for direct admission to Drew. Students will gain additional academic preparation and English language support.

Drew from the resources of, not just one, but two great universities!
A Bachelor of Arts in engineering plus a Bachelor of Science in five years. A bachelor’s degree and law degree in six. How about a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Arts in Management in under 5 years? We offer you several combinations of degrees you can earn in combined degree programs—all at world-class schools.
Take one of these paths, and not only could you have both of your degrees earlier—and at lower cost—but also mentorship and resources from both universities along the entire way.
