Freshman Honors Application


​​​​Freshman Honors Admission Criteria

We practice a holistic admission strategy, carefully examining each student's entire application and high school record for the qualities and achievements that indicate a good fit for the Honors Program.  

While we do consider GPA, class rank, submitted test scores, and writing samples, the most important quality in a DePaul Honors student is a demonstrated passion for learning and a proven commitment to community involvement. 

Apply to the Honors Program as soon as you are admitted to DeP​aul.  

February 1 – Priority deadline

​​March 20 -  Final deadline
June 1 – Final deadline for Music and Theatre students  ​
​​Applications received after March 20 are reviewed on a space-available basis.
