Admission Procedures

  1. Complete the application for admission, including a $25 non-refundable admission fee (Available online).
  2. Submit proof of high school completion and official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.
  • First time freshmen: Official high school transcript with grade point average of 2.0 on a 4-point scale or official G.E.D. or HiSet transcript including scores.
  • Transfer students: Official transcript(s) from each college attended. Cumulative grade point average(s) based on hours attempted will be evaluated for admission purposes.

All application materials are reviewed by the continuing studies admission committee, which reviews applications on an individual basis. Additional application materials may be required, including, but not limited to, a writing sample, letters of reference, and/or a successful residual ACT score. Full admission is based on the student’s academic record and may be conditional on additional steps by the student, including, but not limited to, the student’s enrollment in a reduced schedule (3 to 6 credit hours), completion of three semester hours of a college-level English composition course and a course in computer applications.

Students must be fully admitted in order to receive a degree from the university.

Students retain the right to appeal admission decisions.

No person is excluded from admission to Drury or otherwise treated differently on the basis of any legally protected classification, including gender, race, color, citizenship, national origin, religion, status as a disabled veteran, Vietnam veteran or other veteran status, pregnancy, exercise of legally protected rights, age, sexual orientation or any disability which Drury can reasonably accommodate without undue hardship and which does not create a direct threat to the person or any other person.

Students who wish to enroll in continuing studies courses but do not wish to pursue a degree are welcome at Drury. Drury encourages enrollment in classes for personal and professional enrichment. Acceptable credit earned may be applied toward a degree upon formal admission to the university.
Students should seek admission to the university before completing 30 hours, including transfer hours. (Associate degree candidates must be admitted before completing 18 hours.) If a period of one year elapses during which an admitted student is not enrolled, the student must reapply for admission. Students receiving financial aid and/or students using veterans’ assistance must be admitted to the university prior to enrollment.
