Visiting Students

Visiting students must be in good academic standing at their home school and have successfully met all course prerequisites in order to enroll. It is the responsibility of visiting students to secure approval from their home schools before registering for summer classes. Drew cannot guarantee that a course will be transferable, but will provide course syllabi to assist with this process. To register:

  1. Submit the application by clicking the “Apply for Classes” button below.
  2. Once your application has been processed you will receive an email asking you to activate your Drew account. Activating your account gives you access to TreeHouse, your student portal online.  Access to TreeHouse is required in order to register for classes, submit required health forms, to view your statement of charges and to register your car for a parking pass.
  3. Once you have access to your TreeHouse student portal, click on “Add or Drop Classes” under the “Registrar” heading to register for classes. Please review the “Registration Instructional link” for further assistance with the registration process, though keep in mind a pin number is not required for summer classes.
  4. If you wish to attend a course for which the prerequisite requirements were fulfilled at a school other than Drew, please contact the instructor of record to request a Prerequisite/Registration Override.
  5. Go to the Admitted Student page for information regarding health forms required of all students attending classes at Drew, parking, housing and other services.

Early College Program for High School Students

To qualify for the Early College program, high school junior and senior students must demonstrate strong academic and extracurricular achievement.

Admitted students may attend introductory (100 level) college courses for academic credit. Students who are interested in attending an intermediate (200 level) or upper (300 level) course can only do so if all per-requisites have been successfully completed and permission has been granted by the instructor of record.
