Transfer Students

There's more than one way to become a member of the CDM community. Make a move from a four-year institution or community college to DePaul CDM through our special admission options including transfer admission and dual admission partnerships with select community colleges.

Students who currently attend another college/university and plan to complete a baccalaureate degree in DePaul CDM should complete and submit the transfer application (available by clicking on the "apply online" button on the left hand side of this page), the $40 application fee ($25 if you apply online) and official transcripts from every college/university attended. Students who have earned fewer than 30 semester (44 quarter) hours of transferable college work at the time of application submission must additionally provide an official high school transcript and an ACT/SAT score report. In this case, applications are evaluated on high school and college work.

Students seeking to transfer undergraduate credit from a foreign university to DePaul are required to submit a course by course evaluation from Educational Perspectives (EP), Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE), or may petition to submit a course by course evaluation from another organization approved by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).  Students are also required to submit course descriptions and may be asked for syllabi with English translations.

All transfer students applying to DePaul University for undergraduate admission are required to have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (based on transferable credit). In addition, all students must be in good academic standing at the last college/university attended (good academic standing is determined by one’s eligibility to enroll at the last college/university attended).

Transfer students are strongly encouraged to file an application as soon as possible during the priority filing periods. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, with decisions made as the file becomes complete. Transfer applications will be accepted until the beginning of the term. Applications postmarked during the priority filing periods may have an advantage when space is limited.

Term Priority Filing Periods:
  • Autumn Quarter (January 1-July 15)
  • Winter Quarter (June 1 - November 15)
  • Spring Quarter (October 15 - March 15)
  • Summer Quarter (February 1 - May 1).

More information for transfer students can be found at the DePaul Transfer Center.
