DAPP was created for students who choose to begin their bachelor’s degree at a community college. You’ll meet regularly with DePaul transfer admission counselors and attend special events for transfer students. Best of all, you will be mapping out your entire degree plan, which will stay with you even after you transfer, so you’ll still be on the right track.

Discover DAPP during Fall Visit Day
As part of our Visit Day programs this fall, we will be offering special sessions on the DePaul Admission Partnership Program. These sessions will highlight the benefits of the program and include the opportunity to join DAPP to take the first step toward transferring to DePaul. By attending one of our Visit Days, you'll also take a campus tour, talk with representatives from admission, hear from faculty members, and learn about the benefits of attending college in one of the world's greatest cities.
