Final certification of degrees is completed by Student Records thirty days after the conferral date.
In dual degree programs authorized by the colleges, the degrees will be conferred simultaneously.
Academic records will be locked upon degree conferral. Under no circumstances will changes be made to the academic record after degree conferral.
If the student begins a new program of study at DePaul, the student’s GPA will be restarted. The one exception to this rule involves Masters’ students whose DePaul Master’s Degree is accepted to meet DePaul’s PhD requirements either in the same or a new field. In this instance the GPA in the PhD program will include the GPA from the DePaul Master’s Degree. Students combining a Masters degree with a Bachelors degree in an approved DePaul Combined Bachelor's/Master's Program will restart their GPA at the beginning of their graduate career.
