    College of Education Events

    We have decided in accordance with University guidance, and for the safety of our community and visitors, to offer limited on-campus visits. In lieu of in-person group events, we will consider requests for limited one-on-one appointments with a counselor on our Lincoln Park campus; however, we would much rather you join one of our upcoming virtual events or schedule a virtual appointment by phone or Zoom. Your safety and the safety of others is our top priority.

    In-Person and Virtual Events

    In-Person Information Sessions
    These informal sessions with an Admission representative and sometimes with faculty members are designed to provide prospective students with both a general introduction to DePaul University and specific information about our graduate programs available through the College of Education.

    Virtual Information Sessions
    Learn more about our graduate Education programs by participating in an hour-long online information session. The Office of Graduate Admissions offers virtual college-level and program specific remote information sessions, as well as sessions that focus on the admissions process and funding your graduate education.

    Cohort and Special Partnership Information Sessions
    We offer information sessions  virtually and in-person throughout the Chicagoland area for select graduate programs that have cohorts forming in partnership with school districts and various organizations including Teach For America, Academy Urban School Leadership, etc. These sessions, which are hosted by Admissions representative include an overview of our degree programs and admissions process, followed by a question-and-answer session.

    Professional Development Lecture Series
    We are pleased to offer a selection of timely continuing education opportunities for current educators, administrators, and counselors who may be considering DePaul.

If you need more time, please schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our admissions representatives.
