At DePaul CDM, you can blend online and on campus classes. Many students find a combination of course delivery styles is the perfect way to juggle work and life demands. Graduate students wanting to complete their degree through online learning do not register for a special online degree. Rather, they apply for a degree program and then sign up for online learning courses. Online learning at CDM is not self-paced study. Though online students can view the lectures at their convenience, they are expected to follow assignment and exam schedules provided by the instructor. Online students are urged to keep their registered email address up-to-date in Campus Connection as email is the primary form of communication in all online programs.
