Drew University is more than a place to earn your degree—it is the beginning of a successful, purpose-driven life.
Choose from 40+ majors, 60+ minors, 18 Dual-Degree programs and 17 pre-professional programs. Every student graduates with a purpose, sought-after transferable skills, a network of mentors, and an experience-based résumé. That’s why 94% of graduates are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.
Drew’s professors do more than teach: they mentor, debate, challenge, and inspire. They care—about you and your learning. And they help you build your network of academic, career, and personal advisors who will guide you along your path to graduation and beyond.
A vibrant, diverse, friendly, personal, and generous place, Drew is buzzing with student life. We offer 90+ student-run clubs and organizations, 22 NCAA Division III athletic teams, a wealth of campus events, and a world of wider opportunity.
Drew puts you in the center of everything. Our beautiful, wooded campus is full of historic buildings and state-of-the-art facilities—where students from all over the world come together to learn more about each other and themselves.
Drew's hometown of Madison, New Jersey, offers the comforts of small-town living with the benefits of big city adventure—we’re only an hour-long train ride away from the capital of the world, New York City.
Every Drew student engages in at least two experiences to build their resume and explore their interests. You can participate in our one-of-a-kind New York City Semesters—on Wall Street, at the United Nations, with media giants, alongside grassroots organizers, in the contemporary art world, or on the theatre scene. You can take advantage of the many opportunities available to study abroad. If science is your interest, you’ll have exceptional opportunities for advanced research in Drew’s Summer Science Institute and Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti (RISE) programs.
You will find your purpose and forge your path as Drew’s unique undergraduate experience puts you on a trajectory of success.

Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.
