Drake University

Drake University is recognized as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the Midwest. A midsized, private university in Des Moines, Iowa, we offer the benefits and resources of a larger institution along with the advantages of intimate class sizes and close personal relationships. Drake enrolls more than 3,300 undergraduates and 1,700 graduate students from 40 states and more than 40 countries. These students choose from more than 70 majors, minors, and concentrations and 20 graduate degrees offered through six colleges and schools.

The Drake Tuition Guarantee

The cost of a Drake education is more accessible than you might think, especially with Drake’s Tuition Guarantee that will save you money on the total cost of your education.  A majority of Drake students, 98%, receive scholarships and financial aid and with Drake’s Tuition Guarantee those renewable scholarships and grants will retain their value year over year rather than diminishing as tuition rises. A total of more than $54 million a year is awarded in scholarships, grants, and work-study programs. This level of aid, combined with the value of a Drake education, makes us one of the best buys in college education according to Barron's 300, Peterson's Guide to Competitive Colleges, and Kiplinger.
