Students with an overall GPA of 3.300 and a minimum grade of B+ in FIN 310 may apply for admission into the program. The admissions committee will consider the student’s GPA, grade in FIN 310 as well as other evidence of superior academic performance for admission into the program.
To declare a major in Finance Honors, a student must meet the following requirements:
Students who have taken the financial accounting courses, ACC 304, ACC 305 and ACC 306, are exempt from taking the financial accounting courses taught within the finance cohort, ACC 307-H and ACC 309-H.
A cumulative GPA of 3.000 is required to remain in the program. A student will be dropped from the program if a grade of D or F is earned in any DePaul course after admission to the program.

The honors student cohort will be exposed to rigorous and challenging courses in corporate finance, risk management, financial statement analysis, and financial accounting. Analytical writing and teamwork skills will be emphasized throughout the program.
