Note: 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.
