General International Student Admission Requirements

The following supplemental items can be used to strengthen an application:

  • Professional experience as evidenced by resume or industry certifications
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Statement of purpose

Due to United States laws, DePaul University cannot provide on-line courses to citizens of Cuba and Iran who are resident 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.

English Proficiency

Students who earned a bachelor's degree outside of the U.S. must present proof of English proficiency to be considered for admission.

Transcript Evaluation

Applicants with non-US educational credentials are required to submit their original educational credentials. 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 from one of the three evaluations companies listed. Official transcript evaluations must be sent to us directly from the credential agency.
