Students are required to follow the Academic Handbook and Code of Student Responsibility​​​​​

Applicants are admitted to the College of Communication on the basis of their proven competencies measured by academic criteria, recommendations, and demonstrated ability to complete programs of study and research prescribed for the M.A. programs. 

Readmission Procedures

Applications for readmission to any of the College of Communication graduate programs after a dismissal will only be considered after one calendar year.  Students who were discontinued from the active status roster for a period of 1-4 (maximum) calendar years must file a readmission application (and any other required admission materials as determined by the Graduate Advisor, Graduate Program Director, and Associate Dean). If more than four years have elapsed since the student has been in attendance, s/he must file a new application with all supporting application materials. The form must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the day of registration for the term in which you expect to resume your studies.

Official copies of transcripts recording scholastic work completed while not enrolled at DePaul University must be submitted. As a policy, students are held to the degree requirements that are in effect at the time of readmission.

Reclassification Procedures

Should the student desire to change programs or admission status, s/he must complete a new online application for the desired program. After submitting the application, it is the applicants’ responsibility to contact the Office of Graduate Admission to verify if any additional documentation is needed.

If you are switching to a different track in a joint program between colleges, you must complete an online application for the partnered college. After submitting the online application, some updated documents may be required.​​
