Drake University

Drake University is a mid-sized, private university with a residential campus in Des Moines Iowa. This page contains links to information you will find helpful as you consider and plan for transferring to Drake University.


Students who transfer to Drake with an AA or AS degree and a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA will enter Drake having fulfilled the Drake Curriculum general education requirements with the exception of the Senior Capstone requirement in the student’s major(s) area of study. Students do not have to attend Drake immediately following the completion of their AA or AS degree to take advantage of this opportunity. Please note that entering first year students who have completed AA or AS degrees while in high school will still have to complete the Drake Curriculum general education requirements. Students may transfer in a maximum of 66 credit hours from a two-year institution. Please reference the AA and AS Degree Articulation Agreement created by Drake.
