What Makes This Program Special?

In addition to a seamless transfer of credits to Drew, you can:

  • Take one course at Drew for no charge during the fall semester of your second year at Brookdale and a second free course during your spring semester. Credits from these courses will be transferred to Drew.
  • Attend lectures, concerts, sports and other special campus events held at Drew.
  • Meet with Drew faculty and staff upon invitation for advisement and informational purposes.
  • Qualify for academic scholarships. Students who enroll at Drew through the Honors Partnership are guaranteed to have their full financial need met, minus a small expected contribution from summer savings.
  • Once admitted to Drew’s College of Liberal Arts, you are eligible to take graduate level courses at Drew’s Theological School and/or Caspersen School of Graduate Studies and apply the credit to your bachelor of arts degree program.


Transfer applicants will be considered for one of three major scholarships at Drew: The Francis Asbury Scholarship, The Presidential Scholarship and The Dean’s Scholarship. A minimum GPA of 3.25 in a solid academic curriculum over at least two semesters is required for consideration. Annual scholarship amounts range from $5,000 to $20,000 and are renewable for up to two additional years at the initial amount awarded, assuming no major changes in college tuition charges and contingent on the maintenance of satisfactory academic progress.

In addition to these scholarships, transfer students from community colleges who are members of Phi Theta Kappa and who have obtained an associates degree are eligible for a PTK Scholarship of $1,500 per year.

Drew also offers need-based grants to domestic transfer students. To determine your eligibility for a need-based grant from Drew, as well as federal and state grants, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA, school code 002603).
