Institute for Professional Development

We have temporarily paused the enrollment process for the Institute for Professional Development (IPD) at DePaul University. Our aim is to enhance the Institute's offerings and ensure an exceptional educational experience for all students. We appreciate your understanding.

In the meantime, you may wish to explore alternative non-degree seeking options, including taking an undergraduate course through DePaul's Jarvis College of Computing and Digital Media or enrolling in a Continuing Education course or program. Individuals may enroll in up to two courses for professional development without committing to a degree program.

If you have previously completed an IPD certificate program, you can request a transcript through DePaul Central. To confirm completion of a certificate, please contact our staff at
