Posthumous Degree

​A posthumous degree may be awarded to degree-seeking candidates who were actively enrolled, in good academic standing, and on track to have met all degree requirements by the end of the term in which their death occurred. 

For all other cases, the Dean may request a Certificate of Accomplishment be awarded to honor the student's progress toward the degree and accomplishments as a member in good-standing of the DePaul community.
