Next Steps Checklist: Transfer/Adult

Get Started

As a newly-admitted DePaul student, you will need to complete the final steps to enroll at DePaul. DePaul students use two web portals to conduct business: Blue Demon Domain and Campus Connect.

Blue Demon Domain

Blue Demon Domain is your application and next steps portal where you’ll find your personal checklist of everything that needs to be completed. You may have set up an account when you were applying to DePaul to check on the status of your application. If you haven’t logged in yet, go to the site and set up your account. You will find instructions and links to your next steps there.

Campus Connect

When you were admitted to DePaul, you also should have received a two-part email with instructions on setting up your Campus Connect account. You will be required to use these Campus Connect login credentials to move through some of the above next steps. Once you are enrolled at DePaul, you will use this portal for all your university transactions and administrative tasks.

Please note: Your Campus Connect login credentials can be used for both portals. If you’ve forgotten your Campus Connect password, use the “Recover Password” link on the login page. If you’ve not received your Campus Connect user ID, contact the Information Services Help Desk at (312) 362-8765 and inform them that you are a newly-admitted student.

Reply to the Offer of Admission and Reserve Your Spot

Declare your intent to enroll and submit your $200 non-refundable tuition deposit through Blue Demon Domain.

(Note: Your deposit will be credited to your student account and will be deducted from your bill after you register for classes and will only apply to the term for which you’ve been admitted.)

If you’ve been admitted after the deposit deadline or for a term other than the fall, submit your deposit within two weeks of receiving your acceptance packet.

Make checks out to “DePaul University,” include your name and student ID in the memo space and mail to:

DePaul University
Office of Undergraduate Admission
1 E. Jackson Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60604

Submit Campus Housing Agreement

On-campus housing is guaranteed to transfer students who submit their Housing Agreement and $400 prepayment by June 1, 2019. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date your Housing Agreement, prepayment and parent/guardian voucher (if necessary) are received by the Department of Housing.

To apply for housing, submit your on-campus Housing Agreement and $400 prepayment through the Request Housing link in Blue Demon Domain.

Visit the Department of Housing for more information.

Apply for Financial Aid

You must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for need-based financial aid. Submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 for maximum aid consideration for the fall quarter.

  • Go to the FAFSA website to file your FAFSA application.
  • Use the School Code Search and select DePaul (#001671) as the school to which you would like your FAFSA information sent.

Note: If you are entering DePaul in the Winter, Spring or Summer quarters, file the FAFSA as soon as possible.

Complete Placement Process

Prior to registering for orientation, you will need to complete DePaul’s required placement tests for writing, mathematics and modern languages (optional) online. You may be exempt from the placement process based on previous transfer credit. To see if you have already fulfilled these requirements or to complete your placement process, go to Blue Demon Domain and use the ”Complete Your Placement Process” link in your checklist.

If you’ve completed exams through Advanced Placement courses, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and/or the International Baccalaureate program, you may receive course credit from DePaul based on your scores/transcripts.

You may have your scores/transcripts sent electronically by the testing agency, or you may mail them to:

DePaul University
Office of Undergraduate Admission
1 E. Jackson Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60604

Transition DePaul Orientation

DePaul’s transfer student orientation program – Transition DePaul – is a two-part orientation, consisting of both online and on-campus experiences. Once you’ve completed the online orientation and the placement process outlined above, you’ll be ready to register for our mandatory on-campus orientation program where you will register for classes and prepare for the upcoming quarter.

Transition DePaul on-campus orientation programs are offered periodically throughout the year.

Get started with your orientation experience:

  • Log in to Blue Demon Domain to complete the Online Orientation and register for Transition DePaul.

Learn more through the Office of New Student and Family Engagement.

Contact the Office of New Student and Family Engagement at (773) 325-7360 or email orientation@depaul.edu with any questions.

Visit Campus

The best way for you to get a feel for what life at DePaul is like is to visit. We offer many options for campus visits to admitted students. Learn more and register online.

Submit Final Transcript

Enrollment is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance through all of your educational terms. Send us your official, final transcript from the institution you most recently attended as soon as it becomes available. Failure to submit your final transcript will prevent you from registering for classes.

Submit your transcript to:

DePaul University
Office of Undergraduate Admission
1 E. Jackson Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60604

If you should fall below the academic standards on which your admission was based or exhibit a significant change in character, DePaul has the right to revoke your offer of admission, withdraw you from any courses for which you have registered and institute additional requirements for reapplication.

Provide Proof of Immunization

DePaul University complies with Illinois state law, which requires all students attending a campus location to provide proof of immunization. Please view the immunization requirements for more details. You can upload your records online through Blue Demon Domain. ​
