Course Credit Information

Course Credit Information

DePaul's College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM) offers undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. degree programs, and uses the following guidelines in determining how certificate program credit may apply to its degree programs. It is important to note that students in the master's programs may only substitute a maximum of two of their master's-level course requirements with credit earned in a certificate program. In all cases, students should contact their advisors to see if, and how, the credit hours will apply to their degree program.
