Statement of Purpose/Personal Statement
Most programs require a one- to two-page statement explaining the applicant's academic goals, career plans, and reasons for selecting the graduate program. Please note that some programs require additional or specific information.
Letters of Recommendation
If required, confidential letters of recommendation should be written by individuals who are able to evaluate the applicant's capability to succeed academically at the graduate level. Please notify recommenders that the letter should include the applicant's full name and the name of the program to which the applicant is applying.
Letters of recommendation can be submitted through the online application. They also can be given to the applicant in a sealed envelope that has been signed over the seal or sent directly to the graduate admission office. Letters of recommendation sent via email must be a PDF attachment on official letterhead and sent directly from the recommender to GradDePaul@depaul.edu.
