Students should familiarize themselves with the following:
DePaul University offers comprehensive services and resources for students:
Most graduate students live off-campus in one of Chicago's many neighborhoods. Students may want to check out DePaul’s
Off-Campus Housing website and
Student Space for apartment finding resources. Graduate students may also consider the
University Center for on-campus graduate housing that is only a few blocks away from the Loop Campus.
College of Communication graduate programs vary with regard to the number of transferred credit hours allowed, with a maximum threshold of three courses (12 credit hours) that can be transferred in. Students must have earned a grade "B" or better in graduate-level courses in order for credit to be transferred. The courses must have been taken in the last five years and not taken toward the completion of another academic degree. Course transferability is not guaranteed, and each request will be addressed on an individual basis.
