OneDePaul​ is intended to improve the way we work across colleges and allow us to help many more students be successful at DePaul.

How does OneDePaul help students succeed?


  • Enables instructors and advisors to send feedback directly to their students if there are concerns about academic performance and provide referrals to additional support services.
  • Provides students with a view of their “Success Team” in one place—includes information about current instructors and advisors.
  • Includes a list of all student support offices that can help students.

Progress Surveys

OneDePaul also provides easy-to-complete Progress Surveys. Twice a quarter, instructors will receive a “Progress Survey” to raise alerts for students who need them. 

  1. Beginning of the quarter: This survey will ask instructors to verify that each student has begun attending the class, whether online or on campus. This survey replaces the Attendance Verification Process and enables DePaul to comply with federal financial aid regulations.
  2. Mid-way through the quarter: This survey replaces the Academic Progress Report and asks instructors to raise alerts for any student who may need extra attention.

Learn how to respond to the progress surveys.

Both the attendance verification and the academic progress surveys are accessed the same way:

  1. You will receive an email announcing that they survey is available.
  2. Within that email, click on the link to access the survey.
  3. You will be asked to provide your Campus Connect credentials. Once you log in, you will arrive at your survey homepage.
  4. On your homepage, you will see a link to a survey for each of your courses.
  5. Click on the survey link for each course and complete the survey(s).

Whenever a faculty member raises an alert/concern for a student, the student will receive an email with the instructor's comments and contact information. This alert/concern is also visible to advisors within their OneDePaul portal.

Additionally, you may raise an alert/concern for a student in your course at any time during the term here.

Best Practices for Instructor Comments

The student is the primary audience for the alert/concern, and the comments entered by faculty are directly emailed to the student. Faculty should address their comments to the student. For example, instead of “Tim has missed several classes,” write “You have missed several classes, and that’s having a negative impact on your grade.”
