Partnership Benefits

Two

Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees

Through DePaul's partnership with the City of Chicago, employees may apply for any credit-bearing classes, certificates and degree programs, both undergraduate and graduate, that the university offers. Benefits include:

  • A 25% tuition discount on most programs
  • No application fee
  • An admission counselor who specializes in serving working adults

Get the discount when you apply

When you apply, you'll be asked to identify your employer. Please indicate "City of Chicago." You will then be asked to identify your department or affiliated agency.  The application fee will be waived and you will be eligible for the discount. DePaul will verify your employment.

This discount cannot be used in conjunction with other DePaul scholarships, waivers or awards, including the Double Demon discount.

Get the discount if you already attend DePaul

Go to Campus Connect. Select the Profile tile. Next, click Work Experience in the left-hand navigation bar. Click the Add Work Experience button. Update your current employer information by selecting City of Chicago from the drop-down box, and then indicate your department or agency.

You will be required to attach proof of your employment as instructed on the Work Experience panel. Please do not submit any password-protected documents.

This discount cannot be used in conjunction with other DePaul scholarships, waivers or awards, including the Double Demon discount.

Please contact the scholarship team at ofascholarships@depaul.edu if you have any questions.

Deferred Payment Option

You may defer payment until the end of the term by using DePaul's Employer Tuition Deferral Plan.

Military and Veterans Benefits

Serving returning military members has been a priority at DePaul since World War II. We do not limit the number of veterans who can enroll through the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides tuition-free education to eligible students. Learn more about your eligibility and veteran educational benefits.
