Do you have to go to school all year round? (In other words, is summer term mandatory?)?

It depends. That sounds complicated, but it really isn't. The thing to remember about Drexel is that we operate on a quarter system; that means that each academic year has four quarters to it (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer).

If you go into the no co-op option (4 years), think of Drexel's schedule as a typical university schedule. You would be here for three terms per year, so fall, winter, and spring terms.

If you go into the one co-op option (4 years), you will have the summer after your freshman year OFF. After that, you will be here for the summer between your sophomore and junior year, and the summer between your junior and senior year. The final summer between junior and senior year, you may be on co-op or you may be in classes, depending on which co-op cycle you are in.

If you go into the three co-op option (5 years), you will have the summer after your freshman year OFF. After that, you will be here for the summers between your sophomore and prejunior year, between your prejunior and junior year, and between your junior and senior year. For those three years, you may be on co-op or you may be in classes, depending on which co-op cycle you are in.
