Transfer Guides

Illinois community college students, use this tool to determine how courses at your current college can be applied to degree requirements for your major at DePaul.

Generate a list of DePaul degree requirements and the courses that meet those requirements at your community college. Gain a better understanding of how credit transfer will work for you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In light of the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and its effect on colleges and universities, we will be amending the DePaul Transfer Credit Policy for credit earned in Spring, Summer and Fall 2020 to allow transfer credit with ‘P’ grades to also count towards a student’s major or minor, as well as WRD 103 & 104 (English Composition I & II). While Spring, Summer, and Fall 2020 ‘P’ grades will be accepted for transfer to DePaul, there may be other reasons that students still want to receive a letter grade for a course (teacher licensure, graduate school requirements, etc.)
