Throughout the financial aid process we will contact you to let you know the status of your application and awards. While there will be instances when we send paper notifications to your mailing address, most of our notifications are sent directly to your university-issued BlueM@il address (

Using Campus Connect

Campus Connect is your online portal to the university. Within Campus Connect you'll find:

  • Financial aid award information
  • Class schedules and registration
  • Tuition balances and due dates

DePaul students conduct most of their administrative tasks through Campus Connect. When you establish your Campus Connect account and participate in any financial aid program (federal, state, institutional or private agency), you are consenting to conduct your business electronically with the Office of Financial Aid. Using Campus Connect is the fastest, most secure and accurate way to do so. If you cannot and/or do not wish to participate electronically, please contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss your options.

Tasks tile

We use the Task tile within Campus Connect to communicate holds and to-do items with all financial aid applicants.

By monitoring these messages you'll know if we need something from you to process your financial aid application or what your next step is to secure financial aid. We'll also email you whenever we post new messages to your Hold and To-Do Summary.

Financial Aid tile

View your financial aid award offer through the Financial Aid tile in Campus Connect. Use the "View My Financial Aid" menu item to review, print, accept or decline your financial aid offers.

Your Message Center stores most emails from the Office of Financial Aid – things like FAFSA reminders, financial aid offer notifications, reminders to accept, reduce, or decline your award offers, and reminders to complete your loan requirements. Review these email communications using the “Message Center” menu item in your Financial Aid tile.
