All students applying to DePaul University for undergraduate transfer and adult admission must be in good standing at the last college/university attended (good standing is determined by one’s eligibility to re-enroll at the last college/university attended.) In addition, all students are required to have a minimum 2.0 grade point average at the last institution attended and meet the minimum cumulative grade point average, as set by the specific DePaul University college or school.
A mandatory secondary review occurs for the following two cases.
- Prior academic integrity violations. Students on probation or suspended for reasons for academic integrity at a previous institution must have satisfied that institution’s stipulations for a return to good standing before they may be admitted to DePaul. A student dismissed from another institution because of a violation for academic integrity must submit an explanation (see “required explanation” below) for review by a college-based Exceptions Committee who will render an admission decision. The committee may require additional information from the applicant and/or the dismissing institution.
- Prior conduct violations and felony convictions. Students on probation, suspended, or dismissed for conduct reasons at a previous institution and students convicted of a felony must submit an explanation (see “required explanation” below) for review by the Applicant Conduct Review Committee who will render an admission decision. The committee may require additional information from the applicant and/or the dismissing institution.
The required explanation for violations/convictions must include date of occurrence, summary of the incident, how you were held accountable (outcomes, sanctions, etc.), and any additional information you wish to provide.
