You can often get this information from the DePaul Admission and Aid's Transfer Center.
Please remember, however, that there are limits to the number of courses that you can transfer, and all courses taken by DePaul students at other institutions must be approved for application toward DePaul degree requirements. See the other questions and answers about transfer credit in this FAQ.
This varies widely from student to student.
Transfer allocation is done by the LAS College Office. They accept the Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education Core Curriculum (IAI GECC) as a general education core if a student successfully completes the IAI curriculum before transferring and this is indicated on the student's official transcript. In addition to the IAI “package,” however, these students must also complete the junior year experiential learning requirement and the fourth-year Senior Capstone seminar, as well as four domain electives chosen in consultation with a DePaul University academic advisor. Students who have not completed at least two Religion and two Philosophy courses must incorporate these courses into the four required domain electives.
Appeals of transfer credit allocation may be filed with the LAS College Office. Confer with your faculty advisor in the History Department about this.
Please note that students cannot earn credit for the same class through both transfer credit and a DePaul course. Thus, students should be careful NOT to enroll in any courses for which they have already been granted (or expect to receive) transfer credit.
DePaul University accepts AP credit according to the following schedule:
Note: 12 credits maximum for 2 or more AP History exams with scores of 4 or 5.
Please note that students cannot get credit for the same class through both a DePaul course and AP test scores. Thus, students should be careful NOT to enroll in courses for which they have already earned credit through AP tests.
