Parents of Prospective Students

At DePauw, we view parents as partners in the educational process. We recognize that sending a son or daughter to college is a major life event for parents. We also know that parental support aids student success. Our admission counselors, faculty and staff are here to support you and your child as you move forward in your college search process.

Applying To DePauw 

Admission to college is one of the biggest achievements in your son or daughter's life.  Much success rests on the completion of the online application, so it is helpful to plan ahead and stay on top of important deadlines. Through a highly selective process, DePauw University seeks high achieving students who have demonstrated the ability to meet intellectual challenges and have the potential to make significant contributions of talent and energy to life on campus.  The DePauw Office of Admission conducts a comprehensive review of the information submitted in the application to determine whether a student has the potential to succeed at DePauw.  

As a Common Application institution, applying to DePauw is an online process. Freshman applications will be available starting in August of the student's senior year.  To learn more about the required documents necessary for applying to DePauw, please visit the Admissions Materials Checklist.
