Many courses are available for review and playback via the CDM Course Online playback system (COL). If a course is COL-enabled, any student registered in the course has access to the course playback. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize the COL resource wherever available. Some undergraduate courses are offered online. However, CDM currently does not offer any undergraduate program completely online with the exception of a degree completion program in Information Technology for transfer students.


DePaul CDM Online Learning programs are specifically designed to complement the busy lifestyle of working professionals.

We offer many master's degree programs that can be completed entirely online, including:

Graduate students who wish to complete their degree through online learning do not register for a special online degree. Rather, they apply for one of our regular degree programs and then sign up for online learning courses. The degree earned by an online learning student is identical to the degree earned by an on-campus student.
