Academic Probation

​​​​Undergraduate Students

College of Communication students must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 to stay in good academic standing. Failure to meet the guidelines and return to good academic standing within the time frame specified may result in dismissal from the university.

The College of Communication follows the university policy for academic probation found in the Undergraduate Academic Handbook. Students on probation receive an email from the university after the grading deadline. Any specific criteria they must meet in order to continue enrollment in the following term are clearly stated in the letter.

Undergraduate students who are dismissed and wish to return to DePaul University should follow the guidelines outlined in the appeal letter that is sent to your email. If you have not attended DePaul for one or more full academic year, you will need to reapply through the Admission Office as a returning student. A dismissed student must reapply to their previous college. Once admitted, a student can apply for an inter college transfer.

Graduate Students

All students are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 in their coursework. If a student falls below this average, the graduate advisor will inform the student that s/he is on academic probation and has two quarters to attain the required minimum cumulative grade point average (3.0). Failure to meet the required GPA within that time frame may result in dismissal from the program.
