In addition to the DePaul University Graduate Student Handbook, the College of Science and Health (CSH) Graduate Academic Student Handbook includes requirements, policy and regulations for CSH graduate programs. Additional academic information and regulations applicable to a specific graduate program can be found in the individual Program's Graduate Academic Student Handbook.

Upon admission to a graduate program, a student is to follow the University Catalog requirements in effect at the time of entrance. A student who is readmitted or who changes his or her program or enrollment status is subject to the terms of the University Catalog in effect at the time of readmission or status change.

As a graduate student you assume the responsibility to know and meet the regulations, procedures, policies, and deadlines set forth in the University Catalog, CSH Graduate Academic Student Handbook, and your Program Graduate Academic Student Handbook. None of these resources constitutes a contract between the student and the University.  Every effort has been made to provide accurate and firm information.  The University reserves the right to revise the content of its catalogs, handbooks, and schedules, and to change policies, programs, requirements, regulations, procedures, calendars and schedule of tuition and fees; to establish and modify admission and registration criteria; to cancel or change courses or programs and their content and prerequisites; to limit and restrict enrollment; to cancel, divide or change time or location or staffing of classes; and to make any other necessary changes.

Additionally, all students are expected to adhere to the Student Code of Responsibility found in the DePaul University Graduate Student Handbook.

The following programs have their own specific Program Graduate Academic Student Handbook policies:

  • Biological Sciences
  • Chemistry
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • School of Nursing
  • Physics
  • Science Education

If a conflict exists between a particular Program Graduate Academic Student Handbook and the CSH Graduate Academic Student Handbook, then defer to the particular Program Graduate Academic Student Handbook.  If a particular program does not have a graduate academic student handbook, then defer to the CSH Graduate Academic Student Handbook.
