The DePaul Admission Partnership Program (DAPP) is a transfer preparation program designed for students beginning their college education at a community college. It is a great way to make sure that you are taking the right courses for your degree by mapping out a path to your selected major.
By participating, you’ll be able to:
  • Plan ahead. Map out courses at your community college and DePaul for a smooth transfer process.
  • Pay lower tuition rates. Take advantage of the lower tuition rates at your community college for up to two years (66 semester hours).
  • Work with our admission counselors now. Receive guidance, meet them on your community college campus and attend special events.
  • Earn two degrees. Earn an associate’s degree from your community college and a bachelor’s degree from DePaul.
  • Attend special events and workshops.
