COVID-19 Updates and Student Resources FAQs

​​​The College of Science and Health (CSH) is offering a broad combination of in-person, various online modality, and flex courses during Autumn Quarter 2021-2022.  We are very excited to have so many students, faculty, and staff back on the Lincoln Park Campus.  

The CSH Office of Advising and Student Services (OASS) will operate in a hybrid model during Autumn Quarter 2021-2022 from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday to serve our undergraduate, graduate, and pre-health students.  Your assigned advisor will be available for in-person and Zoom appointments by scheduling them via BlueStar.  Alternatively, you may call 773-325-8490 to schedule an appointment.  In-person appointments will only be available to students who are enrolled in in-person classes.  At this time, guests (non-DePaul students, faculty, and staff) are not permitted in the OASS.  We are also here to support your academic success via CSHAdvising@depaul.edu.

7 Habits of Success for Online Classes

1.       Time management: Set a calendar for all of your class times and when major assignments are due and when tests are scheduled.  Also, the College of Education's Academic Success Center provides workshops and support for students to help with building study skills and setting academic goals, regardless of the student's home college. 

2.       Define your workspace: Try to create a private and distraction-free space.

3.       Plan ahead: Develop a routine each day; it will help you build a routine and avoid procrastination.

4.       Instructor help: If you find yourself falling behind or having trouble in a class, reach out directly to the instructor and meet them during virtual office hours.

5.       Classmate support: Make friends in your synchronous classes, and create Zoom study sessions with them.

6.       Celebrate small wins: When you do well on a quiz, exam, or paper, take a moment to relish your accomplishment.

7.       Self-care: Take time for yourself to reenergize and decompress.  Talk with your friends.  Go for a walk, exercise, do yoga, meditate.
