Drexel uses the CollegeBoard CSS Profile to determine eligibility for Drexel need-based aid. All students who are interested in need-based aid must complete a 2016–2017 CSS Profile so that the University has a complete understanding of the student’s family’s financial circumstances. Drexel University awards a limited number of merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students who have excellent academic credentials and the potential for high academic achievement at Drexel.
