ABOUT COMPASS GROUPS:

Adult students: are you interested in making the most of your DePaul University experience and meeting other students? Would you like to gain valuable academic, personal and professional skills that complement what you’ll be learning in the classroom…for free? What if we were to tell you that we are offering you the chance to do all of this AND get to know other DePaul students just like yourself simply by joining a Compass group?

Compass Groups are not meant to be a class and have no credits. They add skill, provide community with other adult students, and, if new, assist in your transition to DePaul by giving you a cohort to transition with that is in your similar situation. Direct questions about Compass Groups to adultstudents@depaul.edu. You are allowed to sign-up for multiple groups. Also, due to limited space, we will follow-up to verify your selected participation.
