Interested in learning more? Attend on-campus or online information sessions, visit over lunch, tour our campus, or meet individually with an admission officer. Register here.

If you are applying for a bachelor’s degree, please review the How to Apply webpage on International Admission’s website. A graduate applicant is a student who has completed at least a bachelor's degree or an equivalent higher education degree, and is interested in applying for a master's or a PhD program.

You are considered an international graduate applicant if you have earned a bachelor’s degree outside of the U.S

General Application Process

Each academic program has different application documentation requirements and available entry terms. Review the documentation requirements and application deadlines by academic program on the Master's Degrees and PhD pages.

*Due to United States laws, DePaul University cannot provide on-line courses to citizens of Cuba and Iran who reside in their countries. The University remains committed to helping these students find other learning opportunities at DePaul. If you are interested, please contact our admission office.

Applicants with International Credentials

In addition to a program’s specific admission requirements, applicants with international credentials may be required to submit additional documentation as part of the application.

To apply to the master’s programs in the College of Computing and Digital Media, applicants must possess the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.

Applicants with international university credit (regardless of the amount of credit earned or grades) are required to submit a course-by-course evaluation by one of the evaluation companies approved by DePaul. The course-by-course evaluation will be used to verify that the degree is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree.

For general guidelines on common degrees equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s, review the International Degree Equivalencies below. Additionally, you will find English proficiency requirements by country.

It is important to note, that the list of equivalencies below is not complete, but rather it represents the most common credentials equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree from each country. Please note, that the course-by-course evaluation will be used to verify that the degree is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree.
