When we receive your Intent to Enroll, your student record will be activated. After we process your form, you will receive an email acknowledging your intent to enroll.
If your program requires additional steps, please follow the instructions on your offer of admission letter.
Academic Advising and Orientation
Contact your department's graduate program director for advising on course selection and sequence. If you're a non-degree student or a student-at-large, your admission letter will contain information about course selection and approval. If you have questions, contact the coordinator of graduate student services in the College of Science and Health advising office at (773) 325-8490 or email@example.com
Most programs hold orientation sessions only in the fall, but some hold them before the start of all the terms to which they admit new students. Invitations to orientation sessions will be sent via email.
You'll be able to complete several of the next steps through Campus Connect, DePaul's online portal for admitted and enrolled students. To get started, visit campusconnect.depaul.edu
