Admission is on a rolling basis. You must have completed 88.00 credit hours at minimum and hold an overall 3.2 minimum DePaul University GPA to be eligible to apply for the combined bachelor’s + master’s degree program in Real Estate.
The overall DePaul University GPA is calculated as the cumulative GPA of all classes taken at DePaul (shown on the most recent quarter of your unofficial transcript). You can access your unofficial transcript from Campus Connect: Self-Service > Academic Records > View Unofficial Transcript.
How does tuition work for the combined bachelor’s + master’s degree program in Real Estate? How will my tuition bill change?
The three (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 nine (9) graduate classes taken after the bachelor's degree is earned 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 from the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. The scholarship becomes effective once you are officially admitted to the graduate program.
Why did I receive 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 Kellstadt Graduate School of Business Program Office. This typically occurs within the final weeks of your senior year as an undergraduate student at the university. Once you are active in the graduate program, the FAFSA will automatically be processed by DePaul for consideration of financial aid.
How do I continue into the graduate program after I finish my bachelor's degree?
The Kellstadt Graduate School of Business will admit you officially into the graduate program upon completion of your undergraduate degree at DePaul University and when you have completed the three (3) required graduate courses during your undergraduate studies. You will receive correspondence confirming your admittance into the graduate program at that time.
What happens if I don't want to continue into the graduate program?
The three (3) graduate classes taken as an undergraduate student will fulfill courses associated with your specific major requirements at the university to successfully complete your bachelor's degree. You may choose to return to the Master of Science in Real Estate if eligible in the future.
When does my graduate GPA begin?
Your graduate GPA begins calculating once you start the graduate program (after RE 520, RE 521 & RE 525). The three (3) graduate classes taken during your undergraduate studies count toward your undergraduate GPA.
