Staff in the Office of Student Academic Life are available to help you navigate difficult times. Whether it be a personal issue, a death or illness in the family or financial difficulty, staff are always available to help.
Short-term emergency loans can be provided to full-time DePauw students. The loans are for emergencies only and are interest free if paid off by the end of the semester in which the loan is granted. Students who need an emergency loan should contact the Vice President for Student Academic Life at (765) 658-4199 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment with the vice president or his designee.
Notices to faculty members
If you must be away from campus due to a family or personal emergency, our staff can notify your faculty members. Some faculty prefer that students work through the Office of Student Life to ensure that students are getting the support they need.
Recommendations to professional schools
Many post-graduation professional programs require a Dean of Students' evaluation form to be completed. If you have such a form to be completed, drop off or mail the form to the Office at 408 S. Locust Street/Union Building 210/Greencastle, IN 46145. Staff in the office will complete the form and notify you via e-mail when the form has been faxed or mailed.
Staff help refer students to DePauw's Restorative Justice Program for assistance in working through conflict.
