How does tuition work for the combined degree program? How will my tuition bill change?
The 3 graduate classes taken during the bachelor's degree are billed at the undergraduate tuition rate with the same financial aid award, if applicable to the student.
The 9 graduate classes taken after the bachelor's degree are billed at the graduate tuition rate. DePaul alumni receive a Double Demon Scholarship which provides 25 percent off tuition while pursuing a graduate business degree. The scholarship becomes effective once you are officially admitted to the graduate program.
I already completed ACC 308, 374 or 383 before I applied to the program. What are my options?
You must complete three graduate classes as a senior. If you have already completed either ACC 308, 374 and/or 383, then you should select from among the core MACC courses to complete the three courses.
If you do not complete three graduate classes as a senior, then you will be required to submit a complete application to the graduate school of business. The GMAT, in this case, can still be waived if you meet the following requirements: 3.2 overall GPA, 3.0 major GPA and B average in your business math courses.
How come I received an error when I tried to apply for graduate financial aid?
When you apply for financial aid for the graduate program, your graduate level is not yet active until your file is processed by the graduate office. This typically occurs within 2 weeks after you submit the petition for graduate admission. Once you are active in the graduate program, then the FAFSA will automatically be processed by DePaul for consideration of financial aid.
I am in the Accountancy Honors program. When do I take the three graduate classes and how do I enroll?
Accountancy honors students will take regular graduate sections of the three graduate classes:
- ACC 545 (in place of ACC 308H)
- ACC 550 (in place of ACC 374H)
- ACC 551 (in place of ACC 383H)
You may take these classes during any quarter after you have completed ACC 372H. We suggest staying on track with the same schedule as accountancy honors classes so that you are on pace to graduate on time.
You will resume the honors cohort with ACC 350H during the final quarter of your senior year.
The grade standard for the three graduate classes is the same as your other Strobel classes. You may not earn more than two grades lower than a B- in any of your accounting classes.
Can I take online graduate classes?
During your senior year, you may only take on-campus sections of ACC 545, ACC 550, and ACC 551 due to the rigorous content of graduate level courses.
