Consult these resources and begin your journey to become the newest graduate student in DePaul's College of Science and Health.
Your first step is to complete the "Intent to Enroll" form online at go.depaul.edu/cshenroll. Submitting this form notifies the College of Science and Health that you intend to enroll at DePaul for the quarter stated in your offer of admission letter. 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.
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 and use your BlueKey information to log in. You should receive an email with instructions on how to create a BlueKey account a few days after your admission decision. If you have any problems logging in, call the Technology Support Center at (312) 362-8765 for assistance.
Once you have logged on to Campus Connect, you'll be able to view the course catalog and class schedules. You also may register for classes, view your financial aid and make payments to your student account.
Registration dates vary depending on the quarter in which you plan to start classes.
For fall quarter, registration opens in mid-May; for winter quarter, registration opens in late October; and for spring and summer quarters, registration opens in mid-February.
