How to Join DAPP

How to Join DAPP

  1. Complete the DAPP participation form. Indicate your intended date of transfer and major. If you have not decided on a major, you may join DAPP by identifying yourself as an “undeclared major.” Your degree requirements will not be able to be locked in until your major is declared.
  2. Schedule an appointment to meet with a DePaul University transfer counselor at the Loop Campus or at your local community college within a month of submitting the DAPP form.
  3. Confirm that you meet the DAPP participation requirements at your scheduled appointment.
