Depaul University recently announced that it has raised its transfer GPA requirements for admissions. The new requirements, which will take effect for the 2021-2022 academic year, will require transfer students to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 in order to be considered for admission.
Depaul is one of the largest universities in the United States, and its transfer admissions process is highly competitive. The university has long been known for its commitment to providing access to higher education for students from all backgrounds. However, the university has also been criticized for its low transfer GPA requirements, which have been as low as 2.0 in the past.
The new requirements are intended to ensure that transfer students have the academic preparation necessary to succeed at Depaul. The university believes that the higher GPA requirement will help to ensure that transfer students are well-prepared for the rigors of college-level coursework.
In addition to the higher GPA requirement, Depaul has also implemented a new transfer credit policy. Under the new policy, transfer students must complete at least 24 credits at Depaul in order to be eligible for graduation. This policy is intended to ensure that transfer students have the opportunity to fully engage in the university’s academic and social life.
Depaul’s new transfer GPA requirements and transfer credit policy are part of the university’s ongoing commitment to providing access to higher education for students from all backgrounds. The university believes that these changes will help to ensure that transfer students are well-prepared for the rigors of college-level coursework and are able to fully engage in the university’s academic and social life.
