The Office of Admissions and Enrollment Service’s mission is to ensure access to education for all individuals with a special effort made to seek diversity of population and to support the historically underserved.
Drake State admits on a first come, first served basis. All students who meet the established admission criteria will be admitted without regard to the applicant’s race, color, disability, sex, religion, creed, national origin, or age.
*See Admission Requirements for a detailed list of steps to complete the enrollment process.*
Students are admitted at the beginning of each of the three academic semesters in all programs. All new students must submit all required documents for admission to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services, and should check the official academic calendar for important dates and deadlines.
All students who attended prior to 2000 will need to contact the Office of Admissions and Registrar for transcript processing instructions.
The Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services does not issue or reproduce transcripts from other institutions. Requests for transcripts or work taken at other institutions must be directed to the institution concerned.
Review options and deadlines. If the withdrawal from school is within 2 weeks after the start of class, the student may be due a tuition refund (see Refund Policy under the Policies and Procedures section of the Catalog). Any veteran who withdraws from school may be required to repay in full to the Veteran Administration benefits received that semester up to the time of withdrawal.
Students who withdraw after the registration period will have each of their courses recorded as “W”. W’s are not used in grade point calculations.
