We welcome students from all over the world to DePaul CDM. Applicants with non-US educational credentials are required to submit their original educational credentials (transcripts, mark sheets, degree certificates) and evaluation fee directly to one of the three evaluation companies below. You must request an evaluation that will provide us with a course by course evaluation of your record which will be used during the admission process.
Please direct any questions about required credentials to the evaluation company you have selected and not to our admission office. DePaul University will not accept evaluations from any evaluation company not listed here.
Please utilize this International Admission Tool to determine the academic credentials needed for students from your country.
Your application will not be reviewed until we receive the completed evaluation from the company you select.
Any international student who submits original or official academic transcripts to CDM for the purposes of admission evaluation can request to have these transcripts returned. CDM will process transcript return requests after an admission decision has been made. The document will be available for pickup during the first week of each quarter.
We realize the value of original academic documents and the difficulty sometimes associated with obtaining them. Once we have completed our evaluation, you may complete a transcript return form to pick up your documents. Please see this link to print the Transcript Return Request. We can not return any credential evaluation forms or other supporting documents.
Submit completed transcript return requests to:

We retain documents associated with your application for 5 years from your last date of attendance. We keep applicant files for one year only for students who do not attend.
The educational systems and documents we require vary by country. In general, we require official credentials in the original language with English translations. Please see below for more information on countries with more unique circumstances.
To determine the necessary document requirements from your home country, please utilize this International Admission Tool.
International Students with Domestic Transcripts
Domestic transcripts submitted to CDM for any administrative purpose will become property of DePaul CDM and will not be returned. Domestic transcripts and documents can be obtained from the institution or organization that originally issued the document.
